One Room School

Vicki and I went for a ride last week and while driving the Feather River Hiway (CA70) in Northern California we came across an old One Room School. The fence and gate in front of the building were overgrown with wild roses to the point access was not possible however I managed to take this photo of a disappearing piece of Americana the one room Schoolhouse. This one is the Summit School located on CA70 Chilcoot, California. Click on Image to view full size.

  1. I like this photo. Great composition. Don’t see many of these old country school houses anymore. Most either faded away with time, torn down or converted to homes. My dad went to one of these country schools the first 8 grades in Hendricks County, Indiana.
