The Old Hix School by TheMan268 The Old Hix School by TheMan268
This is the Hix School in rural Tennessee, U.S.A. It was a one room school house from around the turn of the last century. As you can see it has about fallen down and soon will be forgotten by all as the older people in this rural Tennessee area pass away.

Inspiring!

What a hillside by those trees in the back. This reminds me of another abandoned schoolhouse somewhere north of PA Rt. 322 near a farm, I went to it and saw the interior paintballed. It was in an area overgrown with trees so I think it's been abandoned for a long time, After I visited someone put "NO TRESPASSING" Signs up but not the very next day.

Great photo!  Such a shame that it wasn't kept up.  Here in NJ we have a few which are now historical landmarks or were converted into other buildings.

That's life. Everything grows and falls apart. This is such a example for it. So many memories but will fade away eventually. That is why I am happy that some people thought about our history and kept their secrets hidden for us to unravel. How amazing what a picture can do to someones imagination.

I just saw this and wanted to congratulate you on your well deserved DD for it! :winner: These old places are fast disappearing and it's good that you're documenting them before they are gone.

Great picture.
There is school house that is still standing in Columbia, Illinois called the Shoemaker School. It's a one room school house that a docter built for his kids on 1867. It's really neat. I have pictures in my gallery if you want to see them.
