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.

Sheridan #9

Another one we learned about while attending the country school conference.  Located at the NW corner of W. 90th St. and 130th Ave, north of Davenport.  Access from I-80 would be to exit NW on SR130/Northwest Blvd, and then proceed west on W. 90th St to 130th Ave. Converted to home.

First photo is of the west and south sides, other one is south and east sides.

Photographed 10/20/16
