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.

Penn #3, Dutch/Union School, North Liberty

On the south side of town, on Forevergreen Road.  Proceed  east of Highway 965 on Forevergreen to the intersection of Front Street.  The school is now a house on the south side of Evergreen at the junction of the two streets.  We could have photographed this one quite a while back, but waited until a nice day after the leaves fell so it would be seen better.  The old pump still stands in the front yard, although the school building itself has undergone much modification.  Address is 101 Evergreen.
