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.

Scott #1, Bleak Knoll School

This school is east of Iowa City on the Herbert Hoover Highway.  From the Junction of Herbert Hoover and I-80, proceed east three miles to Oasis Road.  The school is on the SE corner and is now a residence.  The first shot is taken from Hoover Highway looking east:
These next two shots were taken on Oasis Road, next to the house.
This last shot was taken from Oasis Road on the North side of Hoover Highway.
