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.

Washington #4, Baugh School

Closed in 1952.  From Marengo, proceed north on County V66; it will merge with county F15 as it turns west-bound.  When V66 splits north, proceed west on F15 for about 3/4 mile to KK Ave; the school is on the NE corner of the intersection.  Now a house, with a garage addition on the east side.  The first photo is of the west side.
Photographed 9/8/12
