As summer draws to a close, students and teachers return to classrooms for the start of a new academic year. For generations, schools have been the heart of the community, both here in Moab and in far-flung classrooms across Grand County. School buildings—and indeed whole towns—have come and gone across the Grand County landscape over the generations, but photographs and stories of schools remain at the heart of community memory.
Today, as in the past, educators play a tremendous role in the Moab community, and photographs and stories in the Museum collection preserve memories from classrooms of the past. Have a look!
The Moab Museum is dedicated to sharing stories of the natural and human history of the Moab area. To explore more of Moab’s stories and artifacts, find out about upcoming programs, and become a Member, visit www.moabmuseum.org.
