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.

Wayne #2, Langworthy School

Langworthy is a very small town NE of Anamosa through which US151 used to pass.  Now you have to use old US151 into town to 180th St and then turn west on 180; its address is 17782.  The driveway is labeled as “Old Schoolhouse Rd.”  The conversion to house is quite substantial, but you can still discern the school as the north half of the current structure.
