This neat old school house is certainly a time capsule! Just about everything inside looks to be untouched. I’ve been told when it closed it was boarded up sometime after. The main structure is fairly sound but the front and rear covered porch rooms are scary and dangerous. The rear room is structurally unsound and the roof is being held up by the door!

  1. I don’t know where the old school that is in such disrepair is, but it is NOT Clayton School. Clayton School was sold as a private residence soon after it closed. As well Clayton school had two blackboards at the front, not one door and a blackboard. This is likely another school in the Clayton area that someone figured was “Clayton School”
