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

Prairie Du Chein, WI

This monster probably had more than one room, but ya gotta admit, it is an interesting structure!  We shot this school on 11/29/09.  It is on US18 on the east side of town.

We visited this school again on 10/22/16.  There is now a veterans' memorial in front of it, including with a tank!  But I only photographed the school to post here to show the changes in 7 years.
