	Like most rural areas, Carroll County had many one-room schoolhouses.  With consolidations, these academic buildings were abandoned or refashioned to house farm equipment.  This old school house sits upon a small knoll overlooking acres of farmland.  If it could share its memories, we might hear about long walks to and from school, pigtails stuck in inkwells, and recess games of crack-the-whip and marbles.  Remains of the past reflect a lifestyle that was simpler and peaceful.
