First view of Little Greenbriar School at Metcalfe Bottoms

First view of the Little Greenbriar School at Metcalfe Bottoms. Looking over the cemetary. The schoolhouse must have also been the church.
This is the view outside. Nature calling them while they tried to study.
That dark spot is a hole the children made in the desk so they could pass notes through. Notice the name, the hole is about 1 oclock to it.

Good morning Leedra, wonderful post. These old places are so beautiful. I also loved your little birds below. I'm off to work but hope to catch up on your blog in the next day or so. Looking forward to sitting down with a cuppa and seeing you tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by again, always great to see you there. Have a great day :)

Kids are always the same, no matter what the timeframe! :-) They had carved up those desktops pretty thoroughly! I especially love the first shot of the trees in the sunlight--really gorgeous view!
