Closed circa 1950. Located at 8100 Spanish Rd. The original location was 1/4 mile south, and it was moved to the Edwin and Martha Buresh farm for use as a garage and shop. From Ely or Cedar Rapids one can find this school by using Wright Brothers Blvd, and about 1 mile west of Ely Rd turn north on Spanish Rd for about 1/2 mile. The school is on the west side of the road behind a house.

Update 2/3/18: This link has photos of this school in operation as well as more information:
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.
