This is what remains of the old Frey 1-room School House. This old 1-room school was in use when I was in High Scool back in the early 60’s. Grades from 1 – 8 were taught here by a Mr. Gehert, a teacher I’ve never known. Just how old this school is I really don’t know, but it’s been here at this spot for as long as I can remember. The front area shown used to be the play yard, but now it’s full of weeds. I remember this play yard being a dirt yard with 1 swing set and a see-saw. They are long gone now.
Using “Selective Color” this is the main entrance to the school. I wanted to take a peek at what was inside, but it was locked up. All I could do was look thru the glass window and just see a bunch of ole’ rusty junk piled in it. What I wanted to do is get some Images of the Pot Bellied Stove that is still there. I was sorry I couldn’t do that.
Still standing after many years is the Barn that is right next to the school. The Barn was used to house pigs, chickens, and horses in its day. I remember the barnyard critters being here long ago. I’m surprised that the Barn is still standing.
Just one of the 6 windows at the school. They are just rotting away. I have heard that there are no plans to save this old school. It will pass into History.
Thanks for stopping here.

Wow. The building is beautiful. I can’t imagine teaching eight grades at once.
A piece of history, for sure. Sorry you couldn’t get inside to get a photo of that stove!
I could have, but would have to break the lock!
Very interesting and one teacher for 8 grades??? WOW!
Yes. That’s the way it was back in those day’s.
