1953 Laraine Jones

In 2008, the Fowlerville News and Views published the following article and picture:
At the time I was working on The Fowlerville Chronicles, I kept coming back to this portrait -- what a beautiful woman.  Ultimately, I didn't put this in the book but always kept it to sometime add to this website.  Before seeing this article, I didn't know there was a dance school here in Fowlerville before Maria's School of Dance. 

This has me thinking this village is very lucky to have such dedication to the arts.  And on a side note, Fowlerville's early history, particularly in the early 1900s, it was reported, W.H. Peek is conducting a dancing school in the Bell opera house.

As we've been preparing for the 175th celebration, her house has been noted as one of the historic places to check out. It is the Craftsman-style house just west of the huge Kennedy's house that is being renovated.
