Zayante School: Circa 1940’s – Story + Photo

Story from reader Michael “Mickey” Barnhill:

I also went to Zayante school, my name is Michael Barnhill (a.k.a.) Mickey. I was born in 1941. So think I started school in 1947. I rember the janitor’s house burned down, and him & his wife were killed. . Then we were bused to a new school in Felton. But then my sister Dale Barnhill And I left Zayante, Dad reinelsted in the Navy & and we lived Hunters Point Naval Station, waiting on a ship to take us to Hiwaii. We were there about a year. I built a raft,cause I was getting bored waiting for the ship.As I was about to launch my sturdy vessel , I said goodby to family and friends. Told them I would meet them in Pearl Harbor, when they arrived.Needless to say they confiscated my Viking ship, made of an old door and some logs that washed ashore tightly cinched together with some Rotten Rope I found on the beach. They broke up my mighty vessel & sent the parts adrift.
