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.

Jackson #7, Waggoner School

This school was moved to its current location from a couple miles north.  It is currently behind a house at 18216 State Highway 64, 2.3 miles east of US151.  And it is only a mile west of the preserved Antioch #6!
As you can see, this school is now used as a garage.  The east side has doors cut into it, and there is an addition in the back, but on the west side you can readily see the old school structure.
