Mr. H. H. Parrot was
chief custodian of the Gideon Schools in the 1950's.This picture
shows him in the Boiler Room which was also his office...but
how the Boiler Room is
remembered. The Boiler Room was also the "Paddling

you to the Boiler Room"
was all that was needed.
The Boiler Rooms were replaced with central heat and air.
