School House for Sale

Good morning,

Today's image of an old school house for sale was taken while we were driving by.  I was happy it turned out as well as it did.  It is on the outskirts of Cincinnati and has had several uses since it was a school house.  It has obviously been upgraded with new windows.  If we had more time, it would have been fun to go in and take a tour.

Old buildings are always fun to explore, aren't they?

All the best,
Lois

It's nice to see when older buildings have been re-purposes, but sadly so many more have been left to decline I gracefully. Every time we go for a ride and I see old homes in disrepair and decline, Imcan't help but wonder how folks could walk away from them. But, doing so may have been less costly than any alternatives for them.

Had to smile at your title, Lois. "School House for Sale" -music to many kids' ears! :-)

That is really cool! I love old buildings, shacks, barns, etc., but they're usually on private property, and we don't go in them...I'm quite sure there'd be snakes, mice, etc. in them.

Oh I love exploring old buildings! And yes I would have loved to see the inside of that building!
Love Di ♥

i bet the historical society has some restrictions on what can be done to it. :)

If it is a way to preserve it...

I'm glad that sturdy old buildings like that old school get repurposed. I have been out of high school for 39 years this year. Every single building that I attended in school in various towns in Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico has been torn down.

I love old buildings. This is a lovely one. I hope someone buys it and gives it a lot of TLC. If I had the know-how and the energy I would love to buy an old place and bring it back to the way it was and should be.

I love the bright red building! I hope someone buys it and it doesn't get knocked down!

That would make a lovely home for someone willing to refurbish and renovate.
