One thought on “Reynoldson Institute”

  1. I love these pictures. My grandfather, Lannie Eugene Smith, was a student at this school living with his uncle during the week and returning home every weekend in order to attend.
    Do any of the photos have the names of the children listed?
    Thank you for the wonderful history and images.
    I assume the building no longer exists?
