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.

Canoe Township #?, Pot Hollow School

This school was originally located north of Decorah; from US52 turn west on Meadowlark Rd, and then turn south on wagon road to the first curve.  It was moved to Burr Oak in 1960, to be next to the Burr Oak School.  The school was built in 1915 and restored in 1994.  It was used as an artist’s studio when first moved.  It is in the town of Burr Oak, at 2353 360th St.
