My boyfriend and I took a road-trip up the California coast into Oregon last summer and we just couldn't resist this old abandoned structure we saw along Highway 1.

This around the right hand side of the structure and is the actual front door.

There was nothing left of the floor here but the cross beams.

Two separate bathrooms, boys and girls.

We determined that it must have been either an abandoned church or school, as this was all that was left of the piano.

I think it was actually Salt Point, because my boyfriend tried to look on-line, after we explored it, for any info on the structure in that area and found nothing.

We had to hop a barbed wire fence to get to it. But we had a blast exploring!

Nice photos! I wonder what the hole in the yard was for.

Dependent upon the depth, probably a well.

I don't know, but it definitely added to the creepy factor. :}

Most likely it was the septic system.

I would suspect the hole is a well if there was indoor toilets. I'm surprised there wasn't a bell tower though...

The first picture is really beautiful. It has a very haunting quality and I love the framing of the house between the dark green woods and the yellow grass. That is one for the wall!

At first I thought what was left of the piano was an art piece. It would look so cool on a wall as 'found art.'

This little old school house is just south of the general store at Stewart's Point CA, which is slightly south of the Sea Ranch development which starts at the Gualala River bridge south crossing at the Sonoma/Mendocino Counties boarder. My Great Grandmonther taught there in 1950 to 1952, there were eight grades and around 15 children. The building had been abandoned when she took the job. The old desks were still in place. It had an old wood stove for heat, don't remember if there was electricity.

one Room Old School House

My Grandson Jason Wright is correct, this is an old one room school house. My mother taught school there from 1950 through 1952. She taught all eight grades and also maintained the building at the same time. I recall going to school there when I could not attend school in Point Arena for one reason or another. I recall one day she had to remove a huge rat from the toilet plus keep the kids busy in their studies. She was brilliant and very proficient as a teacher, her students excelled in all eight grades. She did this with no teacher aids or very little help from the local community. Very found memories of my mother and the little school house sitting on the bluffs of the Pacific Ocean.
