Marion Township District 10 Schoolhouse #2

This graffiti is inside an abandoned one-room schoolhouse on Winchester Road, just north of South County Line Road in Allen County, Indiana. It is one of only a couple of these old schoolhouses that I have found with reasonably intact interiors. Most have had the floors and interior walls torn out so that they could be used as barns or garages.

The entire interior is covered in spray-painted graffiti. This is on the back wall, where the blackboard would have been. I photographed it through one of the broken-out windows. Poison ivy covered the window frames, making it impossible for me to go inside!

I find it amusing that the graffiti appears to have been built up with different vandals responding to previous graffiti. An American flag has the word "fuck" written under it, with an arrow pointing at the flag. One vandal was patriotic, another wanted to say "Fuck America," and another added a woman's name next to the curse word to say "Fuck Alice."


Update: The Marion Township District 10 Schoolhouse was demolished in 2018.

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.
