Clay Township One-Room Schoolhouse

It may be difficult for some to comprehend, but buildings such as this one once served as a school for all 12 grades. Quite a few of the old rural one-room schoolhouses still stand, such as the one shown here in Clay Township, Kosciusko County, near Claypool, on County Road 700 South at the intersection with County Farm Road. The brick building was built in the 1880s. A vivid reminder of just how far public education has progressed.

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.
