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.

Unknown School in Competine Township

This school has been moved to a farm for use as a storage building at 13835 Competine Rd, SE of Farson. Farson is a small town on county V41/Farson Rd south of Martinsburg. The first east/west street just north of Farson is 165th St. From Farson Rd and 165th St, proceed east to Competine Rd and then turn south. The farm is just south of 142nd St on the east side of Competine Rd.
