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.

Jackson Township, Quality Ridge School

Located about 1.5 miles west of Coggon on the NW corner of Coggon Rd and Quality Ridge Rd; address is 5806 Quality Ridge Rd.

Built in 1880, closed in 1941.  Family member of current owners said the school was originally about a mile west and relocated here by former residents, but a 1940 photo shows the school at its current location.  More information would be welcome.
