Bommer II, Diane Chambers, Joyce Chambers, Terry Bommer, Jennifer Bommer; front row, from left, Britt, Bryce, Brenna and Beau Bommer. Joyce is from Idaho Falls, Idaho, and the rest of the family is from California. Their ancestors started the school near Oketo. The building was later moved to Marysville City Park.

Three generations of the Bommer family whose ancestors established a one-room school near Oketo held a reunion here June 20 at the schoolhouse now located in Marysville City Park.

The schoolhouse has been in the park for many years and is open to the public for viewing as an example of a typical one-room classroom from the late 19th century and early 20th century.
