ORIGINS

I grew up in a small Ohio town, and I rode the school bus from 1st through 12th grades. My bus ride always included a country road on which every school day we saw a one-room brick school house. (SW corner of Stine Rd and Enon-Xenia Pike). As the years went by, I watched this wonderful, familiar friend fall apart. After I married, the school really began to deteriorate. Every time we visited the area I would want to take a photo of the school, but never did. Finally, when we went specifically for the task, the school was gone. It was a huge loss for me and, since that time, whenever we pass a one-room school, it is a joy to stop to take a picture or two. Thus, our collection here, and the one with schools in other states.

Butler #1? Unidentified School

As we headed east from Walnut Grove, about 2 miles away F33 turned north, and there was an old school now used as a house.  Run-down as it was, we decided to shoot it.  It is on the NE corner of 290th St and County Road Z16.

UPDATE 8/2/17:  This school was demolished by early 2017.
