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.

Unknown School, North of Colo

This school, which is being used as a garage, is about 3 miles north of Colo on US65, on the east side of the road.  You really don’t notice it when approaching from the north due to trees, but there are three windows on the north side also.  Address is 19820.  Of course there is no telling when or where the school came from.
