Rural School, 1930s.

Click for full image

A rural brick school, done in the style of numerous schools that were built during the 1920s and 1930s. Few rural school-buildings are still operating as schools today; if they are, the original building has been added on to numerous times over the past seventy years to accommodate growth or consolidation. Others have been torn down, sit in disrepair, or — the lucky ones — have been taken over by the historical society, an antique shop, or some other business and restored to usefulness.

I went to a school like that in madison county, NC. it was built in 1929 I think, and was the first school in that community. Until then, there had only been one room school houses, or the kids were home tought. It burned for the second time in 1998 and is now a community center. I still go there and part of it still remains, and the playground, and the steps. I love learning the history about old buildings.
