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 #7, Cambria School

From Iowa City, proceed SW on State Highway 1 a bit over 1.5 miles to Sharon Center Road, and turn south.  Proceed about 1/2 mile and this will be on the east side of the road.  Another one highly modified into a house.  Address is 4358.  The first shot is all that can be seen while approaching from the north.
The next three shots are from the west side of the house - the road.  The third one offers a close-up look at the front.
The last shot shows some of the dormer work on the south side of the building.
Photographed 8/11/13
