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 #2, Elm Grove

This school was identified to me by pointing it out on the map.  I was told that this house is the extant school.  Proceed west of Iowa City on the IWV Rd about 3 miles from US218, to James Ave.  Proceed north on James Ave about .25 mile to Neuzil Rd.  The structure is on the NW corner.  Address is 3749 James Ave.
