  6. Wow, it has been wonderfully preserved. We have a one room school just down the way from us. It is known as Caldervale, is made of brick and there is nearly nothing left of it's insides now. It is on our land, and I think all we have left of it are a few blackboards.
    There are quite a few of them scattered throughout our countryside.

  14. That is such a beauty of a place. I posted a photo of a sign in the pavement in Fredrick MD that had Landis on it. I know that is a surname. Curious that you mention it too.

  26. You beautifully captured the light through the windows into the classroom. A tiny glimpse into the past when the room was filled with teacher and students. Bet it was cozy with that huge wood stove.

  27. Hi Christine

    What nice that old school.
    Also saw the circle where the ink was.
    Reminds me to ever mess with the ink
