    Is there a record of teachers that taught at the one room schoolhouse at pioneer village? I am under the impression that my grandmother may have taught here in Minden Nebraska. Ruth Rusmussen Peterson was her name!

    Where can I find this information?

    Thank you for responding?

      My only connection to Pioneer Village is ownership of these postcards, and thus I do not have an answer for you. I am rather pessimistic such a record exists as there was no mandate to collect or maintain such information. Without a person assigned to collect these names, and an official place to send and store them, they are likely lost to history.

      You can call Pioneer Village directly toll-free at the number on their web site: If anyone has such documents or knows where they might be kept, it is likely that the staff at Pioneer Village would be helpful.
