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.

Fairview #3 Independent School

We learned about this school while attending a country school conference 14 and 15 October.  It was part of an independent district in Hickory Grove Township.

At the NE corner of W. 90th St and Maysville Rd.  Access from I-80 would be to exit NW on SR130/Northwest Blvd, and then proceed west on W. 90th St to Maysville Rd.  Converted to home.

The first photo is of the west side of the building.
