Old Schoolhouses in Ohio

From The Daily Record:

Glenn Wengerd of the Winesburg Historical Society said at one time there were seven one-room schoolhouses in Paint Township at the northeast corner of Holmes County.

"This one, Peter's School, dated to 1845. It burned down and they rebuilt it in 1876," he said. "It was about a mile-and-a-half northwest of Winesburg here, out in the country."

Wengerd explained that the Winesburg Historical Society bought the schoolhouse in the early 1990s for $200 and volunteers spent five years disassembling it, marking each piece and putting it back on the original foundation stone. The building sits in Winesburg Heritage Park off U.S. Route 62, next to a restored 1837 log cabin. (Read more.)
