PAUL BROWN — Photo provided

Each Monday, the Centre Daily Times will publish an installment in our “Share our Heritage” series, featuring photos from Centre County’s past. Today’s photo is from Paul Brown, of Pleasant Gap.

This photo from the late 1930s shows Axemann School students. The photo shows the entire school and the two teachers who taught grades one to eight, with each teaching four grades, Brown said.

Brown is in the photo and thinks he might be the boy who is second from the right in the fourth row.
