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.

Walnut #5

Walnut #5.  This school is now used as a house/inn.  From I-80 exit 83 at Casey, turn to the south side of I-80, and follow the road labeled N77/110th to the east, and it will turn southbound as Kent Ave.  Proceed south to G15/130th St and turn west.  Proceed one mile to next intersection.  The school is on the SW corner.
