The Township of Eden on the west side of the state located in Mason and Lake County is mostly rural farmland. I saw this old school house surrounded by the farm fields, like it is still waiting for students to come through the door. Carved in the stone above the door is Eden Dist No.2 1892. I grew up in the big city and so did my parents and grand parents. They walked to school and growing up in the 70’s I walked to and from school on days when the weather was decent. I could not imagine the kids walking to school in the winter with the winds howling across the empty farm fields. It’s not like they had busses and cars in the 1890’s. I suppose they could hitch up the horse to the wagon. I wonder if they had remote start on the horses back then.
