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.

Where has my school gone? It was Jericho, wa. # 8. It was 2 miles north of Otterville, and I attended all 8 years there. I heard it was sold to Amish for a chicken house. Sad ending for a noble institution, but thats how life goes.

There are many "missing" schools. I've been told if one has the time and effort to spare, there are records in every county which tell what the disposition was originally, but after that one never knows.
