Those old school pics sure bring back some memories for me. How many of you actually attended a one room school. I started out in one in the late '50's in a small sawmill town near Chapleau. Yup, eight grades in one room, outdoor outhouse, and an oil space heater. I remember having to stand in the corner on my first day of grade 1, I must have been a bad dude. I only wish I had some pics of it to post here.

We have found a few the last couple of days, Found #3 and #4 still looking for 1 and 2.

Funny part is neither school was uphill both ways?

Both are homes today so we didn't want to invade privacy too much so the pics are limited.

...I expect we'll see a lot more this summer...

I did in the mid 80's, Rick

Granted the one room was the size of a warehouse. It was an "open area" concept, with the "classrooms" formed by dividers. No idea what the thinking was behind that

Here's a real one-room schoolhouse though. Chicken Hill in Saskatchewan
Way out West-0245

Is that one a training school for 'The Pirates of Saskatchewan', those look like oars sticking out along the side...

2x8=16 STROKE! 2x16=32 STROKE!

My grandmother told me that teachers would often have their living quarters in a windowless basement of the one-room schools.

May have contributed to the teaching style a bit...

Mike,
Funny, we were coming from the South by way of back roads, so I didn't realize how close we actually were until later. Turns out we rode right past you.

Ferd, I may not have a keg on tap in my garage like the Coolhouse, but the beer is always cold and you're always welcome! Drop in anytime...
