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.

Pleasant Hill School

This school is located northeast of Manchester, IA on Honey Creek Road (D13).  On the north side of town where State Highway 13 and D13 separate, drive 3 miles and it will be on the left side of the road.  We couldn't find any information about when it was used.  Guess which wall had the blackboard.
