Former Dewey School

Shown is the old one room schoolhouse originally known as Dewey School. The school was named after Charles Dewey, who settled on the property in the 1850s. The school later took on the name Pleasant Hill. This building was built in 1882. It is located at the intersection of county roads 37 and 40 in Clinton Township, Elkhart County. The school closed in 1914. Now the building appears to be used for storage.

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.
