Little Red School House
Ok, I have to say I have been gone a few days. I went out of town, but I got lots of great blog pictures! This is once again at Three Rivers. This old school house is just behind the old trading post/bar. It used to accomodate the children from the ranchers in the area. At one point in the 1970's a couple of guys thought it would be a good idea to haul the trunk of a mature (dead) cottonwood into the building. It is still there. So in the small one room of the schoolhouse you walk around the massive tree... It sold recently, I have no idea of the current owners plans. I will do some research and see what I can find out about the history.
Luckily, the building itself is not in bad shape and has been painted over the years. I think it is so cute. Long gone are the days of the one room school.
