Unused for decades, the Goodnoe Hills School was a typical country schoolhouse. There were rarely more than 15 students at a time. In its later years it mostly served children of the Rock Hills Native American People.

Una imagen que a mi me parece muy cinematográfica.
De alguna manera me recuerda a la que habitan los hermanos del film "El secreto de los McCann" dirigida por Tim McCanlies.
Gracias por el recuerdo de este film que me encantó en su día.
Un abrazo Bill

Como bien dice Luis, una imagen que parece extraída de una película

What a dramatic photo of this old school. Our state is also dotted with abandoned one room schools. The school consolidation movement of the 1950s and 1960s put an end to them.

Magnifique photo qui laisse entrevoir autant que la beauté d'apprendre et d'enseigner, le drame qu'ont pu vivre certains qui préféraient le ciel et les hautes herbes aux bancs de l'école...

Muy bonita. Con el contraste de color de la maleza y el dramatismo del cielo y en medio la vieja escuela que se resiste a desaparecer.
Un abrazo y cuidate

I went to a small school, but sure not that small.

What an image! What a sky!

It's a good photo, like the sky, building and surrounds.
Hope someone will restore that school, but suppose there is not much else in that area that would draw visitors.

Looks fantastic old house, and the sky gives the magic feelings.
