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.

Eby's Mill School

From Monticello, proceed SE on State Highway 38 to County Rd E17 at Scotch Grove.  Proceed east on E17 to Eby’s Mill Rd/X73 and turn north.  About 1.5 miles on the south side will be the school pretty much hidden behind trees.  Residence, address 17776.

This was called Timber School not Eby's Mill School. It was built late in 1958

I got the name from someone, but don't remember who it was now! It could have had both names, since that is very common.
