Came across the attached picture and trying to determine if this Schoolhouse still exists. My grandmother went to school there, it would have been in approx. 1893-1896. It only says “North Brick Schoolhouse” under the picture.
My grandparents and great grandparents lived in Rocky Hill – Morton’s and Schoenborn’s with Aunt being married to Frank Robbins who had a farm there in Rocky Hill.
Any information you could share would be greatly appreciated.
