While looking for Dover #6, we met a very nice gentleman in Clermont, whose name was Dean. He was very helpful with directions to Dover #6, and then told us about others we already had photographed except for this particular one. Originally located at the NW corner of CR W42 and B40 (Great River Rd). Relocated 2 miles north of B40 on the west side of W42. It is being remodeled into a Bed and Breakfast.
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.
