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 #3, Victor

Originally located about 4 miles south of Victor at the NW corner of B Ave (CR V38) and 230th St.  In 1952 this school was purchased and moved into Victor and converted into a house, now located on the NE corner of 6th St and County Line Road. In this first photo the original school runs from side to side, with the addition of a porch.
Here you can see the small addition on the left side of the photo.
Here you can see the large addition on the east side of the house.
Photographed 11/5/11
