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.

Graham #7, Oasis School

Proceed east of Iowa City on Herbert Hoover Highway, three miles to Oasis Rd, then turn north.  About 2.25 miles you will come to the small hamlet of Oasis, and this school is on the south side of town on the west side of the road, converted into a garage.
