Lamont is a small town with some churches, a grain elevator, several old buildings, and many well-maintained lawns. It also has a fire station.
One of the things we really appreciate about many small towns is how much they value their local schools. The schools are more than just educational establishments; they're places for community interaction, and places where parents can invest in their children's future. They mean a lot to the people who've attended them.
In this case, the school was discontinued in 1966, but its importance to the community remained -- so much so, in fact, that a historical marker was put up in 2008 to commemorate it.
