Hazel College No. 7

Long Creek Township, Decatur County, Iowa
"A Century of Memories" of Van Wert, Iowa
1880 - 1980, p. 36

In June, 1911, the Hazel College rural school was the setting of a Sunday School with E.J. Blair as superintendent. Attendance rose to 83 in the afternoon services. Mrs. Charley (Julia) Fry remembers going to Sunday School there.

The reason for the afternoon classes were that everyone could attend their own Sunday School and worship services in the morning and attend different classes after lunch to even further their Bible knowledge.
