When ever I run across a one room school house, I stop and take a picture. Like big wooden barns, they are fast disappearing and I feel the need to document them before they completely disappear from the landscape. I am fortunate so many in Kansas were constructed of native stone and have weathered time and Kansas weather well.

I have loved one room schoolhouses since I was a child and my Grandma told me stories about attending a one room schoolhouse. She rode a horse to school and talked about plodding through snow drifts as high as the horse. Her sister, my Great-Aunt Agnes taught in a one room schoolhouse.

Schoolhouses evoke sweet memories of a simpler time. I hope you enjoy these pictures. Feel free to contact me with stories, pictures or locations of other Kansas schoolhouses at

Hinerville, Kansas, District 15, 1898 One Room Schoolhouse


This historic one room Kansas schoolhouse is located at 28001 Hinerville Road, Alma, Kansas 66401, only 1/8 mile off I-70 on Highway 99. It looks like the building was used as a retail business most recently.

  1. I am much like that . . . that is, I have to compulsively stop and take a photograph of any one-room schoolhouse I come across. I come across them fairly frequently as I often roam about the Kansas (and other states) countryside looking for these gems from the past.
