Possibly an unidentified school converted to home; has all the earmarks with no other associated buildings. It is 11 miles south of Indianola on US65/US69, east side of the road. Address 14271. Photographed 1/10/22.
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 blog with schools in other states.

Unknown school. This school is now a home — at least it looks like it had originally been a school. It is located on the south side of state highway 92 about two miles west of Rose Hill, which itself has an old, fallen-into-disrepair consolidated school. My guess would be that this one-room school would have been named Rose Hill. Photographed 12/18/21.
