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 on our Iowa One Room Schools blog. :oD Jill
Here's a school we learned about from an employee at the Lied Lodge in Nebraska City. The school was used from 1857 to 1997, but this is the second building, which was constructed in 1879. From SR2 and U.S.75, proceed south on U.S. 75 for 7 miles to Q Rd (Q is also 3.6 miles south of the airport entrance). Turn west on Q and proceed 3/4 mile. School is on the north side. Used as a residence.
One of the tour guides for the Kregel Windmill Museum in Nebraska City told us about this school, so we went out to find it. West of Nebraska City. Used 1869 to 1981. South side of old SR2/I Road, about 100 ft east of SE corner of 52 road, 3 miles west of Q road.
