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.

Union #6, Dennison/Cole/Scrabble School

On Rohret Rd west of Iowa City, north side of the road, one mile west of Maier Ave.  Apparently the building has been used, but now in a virtual state of disintegration.

This first photo is of the east side.
This photo is of the north side, seen from NE of the building.
Seen from a bit of distance west of the school, looking at the west side.

Photographed 5/11/13

UPDATE 8/2/17:  This building was demolished by June 2017.
