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.

Bennington #6, Waterloo

This school was moved to its present location from Bennington Township, northeast of Waterloo.  It is currently located in Waterloo on the National Cattle Congress Fairgrounds on Ansborough Ave.  It was used from 1914 until 1945.  These photos were taken on 6/29/11
