School was in session

It was known as the Mock School when children from the nearby rural area would walk or possibly ride a horse or even a mule to school. One room schoolhouses were in abundance in rural Indiana, depending on which part of the state, until the 1920s or so when motorized transportation started bussing kids to school in towns and cities. Mock School is now a community center owned by a club and is located in Turkey Creek Township between North Webster and Syracuse at the intersection of two dirt roads.

About historynut11

My name is Tim Ashley and I am a newspaper editor/reporter/photographer in Milford, Indiana, and live in nearby Goshen, Indiana. A deeply held and sincere passion of mine is history and learning from the past. I enjoy a wide variety of history topics, but particularly local history, noted American highways (Lincoln Highway and Route 66), railroad history and the Civil War. I believe we can learn much from the past and that past shapes who we are today. I also enjoy visiting museums and historical sites, as well as taking photos of remnants from the past still standing.
