Photo of Welch High School in 1913  provided by Elizabeth (Haynes) Lovett, WHS '41. Notice the location of the church in this photo compared to the one in the post card photo below. 

This beautiful postcard is from a contributor who wishes to remain anonymous. We first thought it to be  from the early 1930s-era; the  back of the postcard is marked one-cent for domestic mailing and two cents for international mailing.  However, it is obviously the same building as the one above which was destroyed by fire in the early 1920s. As can be seen in the 1913 photo, there was no road up to the school at this time, just a path.
