A major expansion was completed in 1969, allowing four grade levels to attend school in the building.

Sidney Tanning Company
Produced by the Shelby County Historical Society in 1996

tanning.jpg (134200 bytes) In the pioneer days, family fabrics were made in the home — using tanned calf-skins and cowhides. This was all changed when local businesses were established to meet the demand for tanning. One such company was The Sidney Tanning Company - one of the longest operating tanneries in the United States. Founded in 1836 by Mr. Neiswanger, it was closed in 1979. The building was eventually torn down and a city-owned, public parking lot is now located in its place.
