    It looks like a picture of the New School house with the towns families gathered for a group picture.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    The caption on the wall is from an 1881 edition of McGuffy's Reading Charts (Lesson 4--scroll down here):
    https://books.google.com/books?id=lI...page&q&f=false
    So the pic is post 1880.

    By the arrangement on the table I'd have to say that this is a memorial service. It either represents
    a school or a Sunday school class. The old gent in the pic is the subject of the service. It does seem
    to immortalize the achievements of the gent in the portrait but some of the onlookers are probably
    his family and disciples. I don't know if this is McGuffey but it's a good call!

    Nice photo, best wishes!

    I don't know..., but last week, I think Creskol found the watch fob belonging to that man by the desk.

    There seem to be a lot of leaves on the ground, so maybe that narrows down the time of year to mid-autumn?
    So, probably not an Easter Sunday photo, for example.

    Maybe a schoolhouse dedication?
    Complete with the incoming class (students in the foreground)?

    To me, it looks like a memorial service, probably for the gentleman in the picture. The flag below his picture indicates to me that he participated in some military service.

    The picture could be the current President at the time. I remember a Picture of Lyndon Johnson hanging above the stage / Library / Cafeteria at my elementary.

    The bell on the table leads me to believe that it is, as others have mentioned, a school house.

    Another interesting feature of the picture is that some of both men and women are wearing a ribbon.
