This one's in really nice shape, in Elgin Ontario.





Oak Flats.





And this one's in Crow Lake.







And now for something completely different, a picture of a rainbow!

Bringing our total to seven for this weekend... all in Ontario.

This was on Simpson Pit Road, just off highway 60.



A little farther up Simpson Pit Road, at Mask Road.





Just West of Pembroke, Davis Mills.





On Highway 41, in Rankin.





Thanks go to Dresda for the actual location information on those I wasn't sure of!

What a great pair of schools. That bell tower is wonderful! Thanks for posting them.

Sorry, no picture(s) yet but from "Rules For Teachers 1872" printed at the Lang Pioneer Museum:

1. Teachers each day will fill lamps, clean chimneys.

2. Each teacher will bring a bucket of water and a scuttle of coal for the day's session.

3. Make your pens carefully. You may whittle nibs to the individual taste of the pupils.

4. Men teachers may take one evening each week for courting purposes, or two evenings a week if they go to church regularly.

5. After ten hours in school, the teacher may spend the remaining time reading the Bible or other good books.

6. Women teachers who marry or engage in unseemly conduct will be dismissed.

7. Every teacher should lay aside from each pay a goodly sum of his earnings for his benefit during his declining years so that he will not be a burden on society.

8. Any teacher who smokes, uses liquor in any form, frequents pool or public halls, or gets shaved in a barber shop will give good reason to suspect his worth, intention, and honesty.



NOTE: The teacher who performs his labour faithfully and without fault for five years will be giver an increase of twenty-five cents per week in his pay providing the Board of Education approves.

I found these ruins along 7th line south of Carleton Place last weekend. I forgot to get a shot with the bike with it, but this building was quite hidden in the undergrowth anyway...




Clearly destroyed by fire as the charred timbers showed. Lots of debris like tin ceiling lying around as well.

BackRoader and I found a good one today, complete with "that stinky kid", there seems to be one in every class.

Another Ride, Another Four Schools

So the ride started out chilly, and never made it much past 9 degrees C, but it was still good to be out.



After lunch in Westport, ON, we headed West and spotted this beautiful stone school which is now a home. It's on County road 12 near Salem.



This one's in Arden, now used as the Public Library.



The bell - beautifully polished.







On the Hughes road, near Highway 7.



These we spotted just off highway 7.



And finally, this old school closer to home, on the Roger Stephens drive.
