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.

Locust Grove #?, Unknown School 2

About 5 miles west of Fairfield on U.S. 34 is county road V63/Packwood Rd, which goes northbound.  About 1/2 mile north of U.S. 34 is the junction of a road; eastbound the road is 200th St but westbound it is 197th Blvd.  This school is located on the NW corner of this intersection.  Now used for grain storage.
This photo is of the back/north side of the school, photographed from V63.
This one is photographed from the corner of 197th Blvd.
The last two shots are taken from 197th Blvd.
Photographed 6/16/12
