Built in 1927, Honeywell school has seen literally thousands of students over the years. Named for Alba Honeywell, one of the founders of the town and one time mayor, who donated land for the school. Located in the northern part of the city it served as the elementary school for students in that area. Later it served as a center for kindergarten and grades 3 and 4. Due to declining enrollments and costs of renovations it was closed in 2017.

Sadly, and to the chagrin of many city residents, the building is being considered for demolition.

Today was a beautiful, cooler, and way less humid one for a change, so a road trip seemed like a good thing to do.

A request was made some time back for a crop report from Blue Mound Township, McClean County IL.

Where much of the grain will be headed after harvest.
Beautiful drive around Moraine View Park.
(Bumpy Road! Bumpy enough in the vehicle, it would be a real tooth-rattler on a bicycle!)
Next time, allow more time, and tour both places on the Raleigh, or Diamond Back! For Sure!!
