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.

Dover #? Northeast of West Union

From West Union, proceed east on US18 about 2 miles to Ironwood Road (first road past the road to the airport) and turn North.  Proceed about 1.5 miles (with twists and turns until it finally straightens north-bound) and the first turn east after the straight section will be Harness road.  Proceed east on Harness Rd for .5 mile and the school will be on the North side of the road.
