About this Article

Former teachers and students reminisced Tuesday about their days in the Coultrap School building in Geneva, when it was used as a high school, then a junior high. The building is due to be torn down. "Somehow, everything kind of worked out to what is going on in the community," said Geneva History Center executive director Terry Emma, welcoming about 40 people to a lunchtime talk about the Peyton Street school.
