Clear View School, which stood on the northwest corner of what is now South Duff Avenue and Airport Road. Billy Sunday, the evangelist, once attended this school when he was living with his Cory grandparents nearby. In the photo, Louis Eness demonstrates a Billy Sunday "preaching pose." This one-room school was replaced in 1923 with a modern brick building in an unsuccessful effort to head off consolidation. In 1997, Willey (Ron) Ford automotive dealership is located on the old school site. (Original photo, courtesy of Tom Eness (formerly of Gilbert) of Ontario, Wisconsin.)(See also: 192.1087.1)
