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.

Honey Creek #3, Glenwood School

In section 19 of Marengo Township.  Built ca. 1890, closed 1958.  From Ladora, proceed north on CH V52/G Ave to State Hwy 212.  G Ave curves to the NW for a short distance, then bends NE, with a final curve to end at 212.  If the road had gone straight, the school would originally have sat at the NE corner.  Sometime after the school closed it was moved south across the road to a farm, where it is currently used as a machine shed.

The first photo was taken from west of the building, on State Hwy 212.
This second photo was taken from Highway 212.
This last photo was taken from G Ave.
Photographed 8/25/12
