Oppose Lead Deadwood School District Study Options that either abandon or re-purpose the 1924 Brick Deadwood School Building
Read the following historical link about the The Deadwood School :
DickD Comment: Jack Sears DHS1958 is a great supporter of my dhsclassmates website publication since it started in 2007. He always contributes quality posts that show his research and attention to detail. We correspond frequently and I value his council and suggestions. He shares pride of the Deadwood School/High School's quality education system and the life ethic/values they instilled in each student.

|My grandfather, Alfred Sears, is the clean-shaven man with the highest hat (top row, left of center), seated with fourteen mustachioed men on a huge stage coach. On the back is written in elegant script: “Compliments of Edward Lytle Butter and Eggs, Omaha Neb, 1897.” The men were apparently all involved in the creamery business in eastern Nebraska|
This creamery, the largest in the Black Hills, which is owned by A. D. Sears, is worthy of special mention. It has a capacity of 2,000 pounds of butter per day. It is now making from 1,000 to 1,200 pounds per day, and is increasing fast. Five people are employed in the work and the cream is brought mainly from nine gathering stations in Nebraska, from 200 to 400 miles distant, and shipped in by express. . . . The butter is sold in every town in the Black Hills and shipment has been made as far east as New York City.
Mr. Sears also manufactures ice cream, with a rapidly increasing trade, and does a large poultry and egg business, the poultry being kept alive and utilized as trade demands. The principal jobbing business of the Hills in eggs is done by this creamery, which also conducts a wholesale trade in cream.
