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.

Washington #1, Brush School

The original location of this school was one mile north of Frytown on the east side Cosgrove Rd.  This road bends 90 degrees to the west (on 480th St) for .25 miles and then north again.  The school was moved around that corner and then north about 1/4 mile to a farm on the east side of the road and set back about 200 ft, and converted into a house.  First photos are looking at the west side/front of the house.

Photographed on 8/3/13
