    Seems a shame to make this into a home instead of restoring it and making it museum and landmark.

      I agree. I guess it is better for churches and schools to become homes than to be demolished, but I hate to see it. I would rather just have it exist as is, and let people visit it and appreciate it. Maybe use it for functions and events or something.

    I so wish this was in my neck of the woods. I see “Loft Style Living”

    So very unique. This would make a fantastic antique mall.

    Someone could have a restaurant downstairs and maybe a gift shop and then live upstairs.

    I think that it would be really cool to live in an old schoolhouse!

    Large rooms here for a studio/gallery setup for creative types. The Italianate style newel post suggests an 1860’s/1870’s vintage, but in form, this school house looks even older with perhaps some updates in the mid-19th century. Lots of potential here for someone with imagination and creativity.

    Would the little white out-house in picture 6 be the part bath referred to on the agent’s site?

    I grew up in this area the building is huge on the inside and would make a wonderful home, very spacious. The problem with this buildings is that its so far from everything. people who live in this are drive at least thirty minutes to an hour to get to work. Would Make a great home for someone self employed.

    With the large yard and set-up of the interior, it could make for a nice garden and educational center or event space. Somehow, it just seems better suited to a community building than a residence to me.

    This was my grandmother’s home; my aunts and mom lived there (my mom only briefly before she moved out). The downstairs was the “master” bedroom- two large beds at the back. She had a clothesline that stretched across the room where she hung her clothes and separated the beds from the rest of the room. The kitchen and living area were up front. There used to be a coal stove there. Upstairs was used as a bedroom for the kids. My uncle’s wrought iron twin bed was on the landing. No running water- you can see the pump on the side of the house in the first picture. And, of course, the outhouse was the only bathroom.
