The Valley City Times-Record plans to run a historical photograph each week submitted by our readers.

Wes Anderson, curator of the Barnes County Historical Society Museum, provided this photograph of first, second and third grades in 1963 at the Barnes County Lucca School.

Anderson said his uncle, Dennis Topp, was the teacher shown in this photograph. The school opened in 1883, and closed in 1967.

Photos can be of people, events or places in Barnes County from 10, 20, 30 years ago, or even older. Please submit photographs by email to, or drop them by our office at 146 Third Street NE.
