Ocean Park School: The First Seven Decades

Ocean Park School: The First Seven Decades has the appearance of a high school annual and is a compilation of photographs, memories and news clippings from 1936, when the school opened, through the 2004/2005 school year when it was closed for remodeling.  Families are able to trace their heritage through three and four generations of school attendance in Ocean Park, Washington, an ocean side community on the Pacific Coast.

Author Sydney Stevens spoke with many ‘old-timers’ of the area who had clear memories of attending classes when the school opened in 1936 – a time when inside plumbing and electric lights in the new school were “state of the art” and the cost of the daily hot lunch was two cents!  This book presents a delightful look at a rural school in the last decades of the twentieth century.
