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.

Unknown School, Fayette County

South of West Union.  Seen on a farm, set back from the road and restored as living quarters.  Located on the west side of SR150, .6 mile south of 210th St.  Obscured by trees from the road, and seen only from the south at a distance.  Will return to photograph again when the season changes to reduce foliage.
Photographed on 7/27/13.

On 3/17/18 we got this photograph using a telephoto from the road.  I was wearing my kilt and shoes which were not good for climbing up the berm to get a frontal shot from over the fence.  THAT will have to wait for another time.
