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.

York #4, Williamsburg

This school is now used as a barn, and there was a bovine inside when I photographed it!  From Williamsburg, proceed east on County Road F46 about five miles to T Ave, and then turn south.  Continue south, and the school will be 1/2 mile south of 245th Street on the west side of the road.
Photos taken on 7/28/11

UPDATE 8/2/17.  This building apparently collapsed during storms by summer 2017.
