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.

Brandon Township, Central School

Built 1868.  On north corner of 40th Ave and 45th Ave, address 16154 40th Ave. From Canton, proceed east on County F17 to 19th Ave and turn north.  Proceed to 45th Ave, and then a short distance to the corner of 40th Ave.  Faces south.  New metal roof says it is probably going to be restored.  (Photos of the inside were taken by holding the camera inside where the door was broken open.)

Photographed 10/26/15
