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.

Frankville School

On the northwest edge of town, on the corner of County Route W48 and 175th Street.  Two story stone.  Built in 1872 and used until 1962.  Back doors on the SE side of the school on both floors were converted from windows years ago and a fire escape was added.  Photos taken on 8/3/11.
