Honoring our American History

Amazing! I have found so many one room school houses dotting our mid-west landscape. Yesterday Tim and I set out for River Falls WI and took Hwy 29 to Spring Valley.  We zigzagged our way on small county roads, some were rocky gravel, to south of Plum City.  Here is a list of the schools we found.

We were looking for Brookside School which was suppose

We were traveling south on county road 72 and a brick home caught my eye. It looked like a school house, but was not on my list. We turned around to take a picture... the lady waved to us : )
