Knox School in Thief River Falls, MN

The most fun I had with this picture is sending it to Frank. He is a Catholic and attended Catholic School. I did not ask him if he was in this building when it went threw the ice!

It seems that after the 'new' Knox school was built, the Catholics bought the 'old' school for their school. For those of you with memories in Thief River Falls, we know the Catholic School was on Knight Avenue between First and Second Street.

What happened was they tried to move the school across the river before the river was frozen. What they did was drill pilings into the river bottom to keep it jacked up until the river froze and they could continue moving it.
