Martinsville Schoolhouse

"The one room schools in our area are very similar in design. Almost all are made of local stone and consist of one room with a small lobby - the cloakroom - at the front and with 6 large windows, often 3 to the east, 3 to the west; there are arched brick lintels above the windows. Most have a gabled entrance with a recessed door, with a transom window above the door. The Martinsville Schoolhouse is a good example of this typical architecture." Continued
