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.

Montrose Township, Ambrosia School

Not at its original location - apparently it was moved twice for use as a home.  It is now at 2906 U.S. Highway 218, NW of the junction with US61.  From Montrose one could travel west on Peach Orchard Road to US218, and then turn south a very short distance.  House is on east side of the road.  Looks like the south part is the original structure.

This view is approaching from the south.
This south end looks to be the beginning of the original structure.
Seen from just NW of the house from the highway.
Photographed 9/14/13

The following photos from Val Root were taken on the property and give a much better view:
