Fairacres School

Visited in the bitter cold on February 10, 2018. I froze my hands bad enough that they were numb once I got back inside the vehicle. I was in someone else's vehicle, I left my hat and gloves in my vehicle. I figured it would warm up. I was wrong. I would do it all over again.

Formerly a school. Converted at some time in the past to a granary. Now it just sits. This is the second location. It was moved from its original location due to eventual lack of students.

Whenever you can find an old school you soon discover there was no standard building plan for one room schools. There is a wide variety of school types. That is part of what makes this fun. 

There is a hole on the other side and you can see right through the building.


  1. A monument to the lives and the passing of good people.

  2. Do you think they would have used the attic space BW?

  3. It's a beauty. The one room school house I started school in is now just a house...
