An early morning walk last Wednesday with the grandkids. Two block and we reached the stairs that students used to climb daily to get to the old school. Originally the high school for Scotts Mills, then after unification it became the elementary school until a new one was built in 1975 on the outskirts of town. It is now privately owned. Many times Ed and I have wished we’d known when it was put up for sale. We were only about a year too late!
Feather is racing ahead up the steps undaunted by the rough unevenness.
See the open door at the bottom corner of the gym? That was the barn part of the gym where the kids who rode horses to school put them during the school day. The pasture below the gym/barn was fenced so the horses were free to graze.
Finally! The top of the stairs overlooking the town.
