About This Site
The Class of 1949 set another record as the largest so far in Lone Oak history, and it wasn't just an upper class problem. The entire county was growing fast and that included the school system. The new library addition was under construction, which created more problems than solutions at this point. Some of the elementary grades were meeting in the basement under the gym. We're not sure exactly when, but at some point, the Cannery buildings were converted to classrooms along with old agricuture building pressed into service.
We have the annual for 1950, but so far, no newspapers, although they were produced because the annual documents the newspaper staff. We hope you enjoy these memories. If you have addition information that is applicable to the Class of 49, please e-mail the site Webmaster. Please provide contact information so that we may reply.
