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.

Fillmore Township, Tyrone School

Built ca. 1890, closed in 1916.  Discrepancy as to when it was moved, but this is the second building, and it was moved during its tenure as a school due to consolidation of school districts.  Original location was on what is now SR 149/290th St, at the NW corner of where N Ave would be if extended through.  It was moved 1/2 mile north to the north side of F52 Trail, 3/10 mile west of NN Ave, with address 2359.  Was used as a home for about 90 years, and then it has been a rental house.  An addition was constructed on the back during this time.
