A serious error in the building of an 1890 Newport school goes from bad to much worse, here.

"Mr. and Mrs. George Payne, pioneer school teachers from Virginia, announced to the people of Newport that they will receive on their home boys and girls between the ages of five and fourteen for instruction in the rudiments of knowledge, consisting of reading, writing, and arithmetic.  Terms, $2.00 per quarter of eleven weeks.  Hours, 8:00 to 12:00 A. M., and 1:00 to 4:00 P.M."     Cincinnati Daily Gazette, August 1, 1810
