Three young African American boys stand in the center of this school picture. They are no doubt members of the Storms family - an extended family of African Americans who lived in Ferrisburgh, Vergennes, and Panton. The phohtograph is not dated, so it's hard to say who they are, but the land on which their school stood was given to the town by Susannah Storms, who was born enslaved in New York and lived in Vermont a free woman until her death in the 1840s.
