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.

Sharon #7, Elm Grove/Pleasant Grove

Now a garage/shed, with a shed against the back.  From Sharon, proceed east on 500th St to Kansas Ave, and then go south to 560th St and turn east. The school is on the north sided of the road, about 150-200 ft east of Lackender Ave.  The east side of the building is covered with vines, and no windows are visible through it from the street.
