Keeping themselves cleanStudents were responsible for doing their own laundry. Everyone,including Mrs. Gillespie and Mrs. Case, came here on washday. Clothes were boiled in a kettle over an open fire using "Octagon" soap from the commissary or homemade soap if you were thrifty. Clothing and bedding were hung over branches and fence rails to dry.
