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.

Washington #5


From Marengo, proceed north on County V66 to County F15 and turn east.  Proceed about one mile to NN Dr.  This drive looks like a private driveway, and actually will lead straight to the drive for this house just before it turns east.  The school/house is not visible from the highway during times with foliage, as it is behind trees.  A double garage at the beginning of the driveway is all that is seen from the highway when approaching from the west, but if approaching from the east, you can get a quick glimpse of the east half of the building.  The original school building is the western portion, which can be discerned.
