This photo shows the South Hopedale School and Cemetery across the street from Rosenfeld's
    Concrete.  The school, built in 1855, was the third in the area.  It has been the Lussier family
    residence since about 1935.  This picture is in the second printing of Images of America: Hopedale,
    (p. 121) but not the first.  We wanted to use a story about how Memorial Day was observed at the
    school but we hadn't seen this photo until after the book went  to print.  Since this went with the story
    much better than the picture that we used in the first printing, we convinced the publisher to make the
    change.  We became aware of the photo through Roberta Simmons and obtained a copy from the
    original owned by Shirley Nixon.
