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.

Jackson #1, Midland School

This school is in its original location south of Amber on 170th Avenue, between 120th and 130th Streets, address being 12517.  It is on the west side of the road.  This school is now a residence and has been highly modified.  I believe the front window is where the door used to be.  The first shot is taken approaching from the north.
This photo taken from the southeast side shows an entry door where a window used to be.
Photos taken 5/1/11
