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.

Oxford #3, Grabin School

From Oxford, proceed north on State Route 109, across US Rte 6 on Upper Old Hwy 6, but continuing north on Cemetery Rd when the two split.  Continue on Cemetery Rd to 250th St/Grabin Rd., then turn west on Grabin.  Grabin will turn north about 1/2 mile from Cemetery, then go a very short distance and turn NW for about 1/2 mile, then turn north again.  When Grabin again turns west, the school will be on the south side of the road about .25 mile from the turn.  It appears to be used as an outbuilding.
