All the photos I've put on these pages are places that are within about 5 miles of each other. They are places I biked or drove by most every day when growing up.
Right down the corner from where I lived at each end of the road were one room schoolhouses. The Pine Lake Schoolhouse is a family home, or was when I was growing up.
This photo is the Eureka Schoolhouse. It's been empty all my life but still stands there. My Grandpa Steiner (the preacher) taught school in there when he was quite young.
This is the East Lewistown schoolhouse. My grandpa Mellinger went to school there. When he married he bought the building and raised his 4 daughters in that house. We would go as children and have Christmas there, play 4-square with my cousins in the driveway in the summer, and eat grapes from their grape arbor. I spent a lot of time at their house.
P.S. Those girls aren't really helping right now (maybe they did some) but they're riding horses with their 2nd cousin.
