THERE ARE STILL 60 OF THE REMAINING OLD ONE ROOM SCHOOLHOUSES IN MIAMI COUNTY AND THEY ARE SHOWN ON THIS SITE. THE ERA OF THE ONE ROOM SCHOOLHOUSES WAS MOSTLY FROM THE 1870s THRU TO THE 1920-30s, AND AT ONE TIME THERE WERE PROBABLY ALMOST 200 OF THESE SCHOOLS THROUGHOUT THE COUNTY.
TO MAKE SURE IT TRULY WAS A ONE ROOM SCHOOLHOUSE AT ONE TIME IN THE PAST, BEFORE ANY OF THE SCHOOLS WERE PLACED ON THIS SITE, I VERIFIED THE ACCURACY OF THE LOCATION THROUGH A DUPLICATE VERIFICATION PROCESS. ALSO, EVERY HOUSE THAT IS POSTED ON THIS SITE IS COMPRISED OF THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE ORIGINAL SCHOOL,WHICH IS ALSO PERSONALLY VERIFIED. ALTHOUGH SOME HAVE HAD SIDING ADDED, OR OTHER MODIFICATIONS, THEY HAVE KEPT THE ORIGINAL STRUCTURE UNDERNEATH OF IT. EVERYTHING THAT IS POSTED IS TRULY WHAT CONSISTS OF ALMOST ALL OF THE ORIGINAL SCHOOL HOUSE.
PLEASE REALIZE ONLY SO MANY SCHOOL POSTS CAN BE PLACED ON A PAGE, SO IN ORDER TO SEE MORE SCHOOLS, YOU MUST CLICK ON "OLDER POSTS" AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE. TO ENLARGE THE SCHOOL FOR BETTER VIEWING, JUST CLICK ON THE PHOTO.

Bridge was in the center of four of the old one room schoolhouses, all within a
two mile radius. It is almost a certainty that numerous of these students crossed this bridge.
