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.

Ludlow Township #?

From Waukon, proceed south on SR9, and then when SR9 turns west, proceed about 5.5 miles to Poleline Road (one mile west of SR51)(one mile east of the county line), and then turn south.  Proceed two miles to Countryside Road, and the school is on the NW corner of the intersection.  (A state patrolman told us about this school after we stopped to ask him for information about Lycurgus School.)
