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.

Cascade #2, Oak Grove School

Built in 1895, apparently this was somewhere in Cascade originally, although maybe not this site.  This school is located 1 block south of business US151/1st Ave (old US151) on 2nd Ave in Cascade.  Turn south on Garfield street to 2nd, then turn west and it will be seen immediately on the north side of the street just west of the corner house.
Notice in this next shot both bell towers show the different types of bells used.
