1912 yearbook makes it back to Castle Rock High School

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Remember our post from last week about historian Jerry Kelly from Castle Rock, Wash., and his 100 years of Castle Rock yearbooks project?

Well, here’s some more historical yearbook fun at Castle Rock this week – again courtesy of The Daily News.

A 1912 Castle Rock yearbook has been returned to the school by a family in Maine, who found it in their attic. The 100-year old book is apparently in “remarkable” condition and now available in the Castle Rock library for visitors to come take a look at and see a piece of history. The yearbook was published the same year that the Titanic sank!
