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.

Penn #6, Green Bank

To find this school you must depart North Liberty on Dubuque St, southeast bound.  Dubuque St will then bend east, and just past Grace Community Church you will see North Liberty Rd.  Turn south on this road and .2 mile on the left will be the school, now a residence.  The school faces south.

This next photograph was taken on 10/31/14 so as to show the front of the building after most of the leaves have fallen.  There is no unobstructed view of the building without going on the property.
