Sharpsville Schoolhouse

here's a fork in the road where Highways 53 and 390 meet in the northern part of Washington County, Kentucky where a small community known as Sharpsville exists. It's just a few miles from my home and a just bit further from the Tatham Springs Hotel which I explored back in the spring. In the peninsula of land created by this fork sits the old Sharpsville Schoolhouse. Like the old hotel, it's been there as long as I can remember, completely abandoned. When I was a kid, the general store across the street was still open, but it has long since been closed. All that remains of this community are the brick ranch and wooden gabled farm houses
which line the highway and dot the landscape.



The original schoolhouse appears to have been built at the turn of the 20th century. Typical for the era, it is a simple wood frame building resting on a stone foundation, adorned with symmetrical 8-foot windows. The original structure's entrance was at the end of the building, creating a foyer which ran the depth of the building with double-doors at either end and providing access to the four schoolrooms on the interior. The exterior features a tin roof, wood slat siding, and twin brick chimneys, one on either side of the central foyer. The entrance was topped with a faux second-story with a window above the doorway and a small porch covering supported by brick columns. Garnishing the front of the structure was a low cement wall, a curious architectural quirk of the region which is seen on everything from churches to homes. My own childhood home has one of these low walls.




Some time later, I'm guessing in the 1940's or 1950's, some remodelling was performed on the left half of the structure, resulting in much smaller windows, aluminum siding, and an additional front entrance to the building. It's unclear whether these additions were made while the structure still served as a school or later as as a residential building, of which there was ample evidence as we'll soon see. So let's dispense with all the wordiness and small pictures and take a look around, shall we?.

Very long time ago, during the winter period the delegation has decided to fix the passed teaching material. Work has been done successfully, the lesson is learnt and in a consequence is successfully passed examination.
