ORIGINS

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 #6, Lincoln School/West Lincoln School


From State Highway 1 and 520th St, proceed one mile west to Cosgrove Rd.  The school is on the SW corner, just south of a Mennonite Church on the corner.  It looks like it has been lifted to a new foundation.  Used as a Mennonite School.  The first photo is looking at the north side of the school.

Photographed 8/3/13
