Ricky always said he would like to live in a converted church or school house. So now we have one of each. The school house is in good shape. There are window sills that need immediate (okay late spring) attention and the building could do with a fresh coat of exterior paint. While this building will be on the back burner for a bit, we do want to preserve the historic nature of the site. For us that means research, finding any old photos and artifacts to enhance the site. As luck would have it I started collecting old school books 15 years ago when I started a job in higher education. I have several books from the late 1880s, when the school was first built. We are looking forward to ‘spring cleaning’, sweeping out dead bugs, making a tick list of ‘to do’ items and a wish list. I will keep you posted and let you know when school is ‘in session’.
