The Little Red Schoolhouse

I think this is one of my favorite places. I think every town has a little red school house, but this one is special.
That's because my dear hubby went to this little red school house :-)

Can't you just see them doing a fire drill, and kids pouring out of the building, charging down these steps. I imagine it was a day to remember (poor teachers)!

And of course playing out in this green field, or eating lunch on the grass.

There was a huge controversy when the road was going to be widened. The county wanted to move the school, but there was almost an uprising over this issue. The school has since been placed on the National Historical Registry, so it may now rest in peace.

Thanks for joining my little tour.

I remember those fire escapes from my younger days. You were either thrilled to get to use them or scared out of your mind. Thanks for the memories.

Such a lovely school house! I adore all the brick. If those walls could only talk "right"
Have a sweet day, Elizabeth

I love when old buildings are saved. Too many are still so useful.

I went to school in Lake Helen, FL., back in the dark ages. Several years ago, I went down there for a short visit, and had the time to check out the old school buildings. It was in amazingly good repair!
Thanks for a smile and some fun memories!
