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.

Grant #3, Walker, IA

Another school we saw on 5/1/09 was this one, about two miles west of Walker on Iowa State Highway 920.  It was set back from the road and this angle to be able to shoot the whole building necessitated a telephoto lens.  This school was obviously moved to this property, since it sits behind a house.

This one would be Grant #3. As near as I can tell, it probably stood a little farther down on the intersection of 920 and Moses Road.
