Waller School Class 1924
Miss Ward?s class of forty-eight, similar-aged students implies multiple grade classes which were common in Waller up to this time. The first public school term in Waller was started in 1887. It was six months long and Mrs. Nettie Anderson was the first teacher at $35 per month. The town of Waller is not as old as Hempstead, Fields Store, and Hockley, but the Waller Schools grew rapidly through consolidations. Photo by W. J. Nalley, who photographed school classes throughout Waller County in 1924.
