In July 1935, the Vandalia School District purchased the two-story brick house on the corner of Third and Randolph streets, built by John J. Schneider, Vandalia’s premier boot and shoe dealer.
The home was built around the same time as the high school building, and by 1935, more room was needed because of the increase in student census. My late aunt, Vida Rebbe Freeman, remembered attending home economics classes in this house.
