An abandoned brick one-room schoolhouse on Barkley Road in southeast Allen County, Indiana. The schoolhouse has been turned into a barn.


Schoolhouse on Barkley Road #2

The old schoolhouse at the corner of Barkley Road and Fackler Road, in southeast Allen County near Monroeville.

I found this place one day after driving south from New Haven, but did not get good photographs that day because the light was harsh and sunny. Returning to it a few weeks later, I came from Fort Wayne, heading east on Barkley instead of coming from the north as I had before.

As I drove along Barkley Road, I saw an abandoned house sticking above the trees to the south. That house was Richard Youse's house, which was not at all abandoned. Mr. Youse would be a friend and subject for several years after. I made this photograph soon after I met Mr. Youse.

See the next photograph of the schoolhouse on Barkley Road.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
