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.

Lincoln #1, Pleasant Ridge School

This school closed in 1949.  It is located about 4.5 miles south-southwest of Ladora.  Proceed south of Ladora on G Ave (CR V48) to 230th St (one mile south of I-80), then turn west one mile.  The school is on the north side of the road, used for storage, and is in bad shape.
