One Room School Photos

I do think that my grandfather did attend a one room school when he did go to school, even if he didn’t he sure did love taking photographs of one room schools. Here is what is in the Fred Yenerall Collection on One Room School Houses. You really don’t see many of these around any more but you can enjoy the photos that he had of them.

I remember going with him when he took some of the photos. I do know that some of the structures that he took were in bad shape at that time so probably most of these structures are no longer standing or maybe luckily they were restored back to original.

One of the One Room Schools that we went to seemed way out of the way, really off of the well traveled road, how he even knew it was there I will never know, but he knew exactly where it was, and he had marked it on the map and off we went.

Wood Church Photos

There were wooden Churches along almost every route he drove. He couldn’t resist the temptation to stop and take some photos the beautiful wood churches. Even to this day, I personally love old Wood Churches. You can still feel the peacefulness of the buildings. I think that wooden churches are more inviting than huge newer churches.  There are still many wood churches around, not only in Pennsylvania, but you can also find many located in rural and small towns in most states.

I have several of these photos made into 8×10’s and they came out beautifully they are framed and look great.  I also think that the small cemeteries that they have beside them (at least many of the small wood churches do), give them character and creates an awesome photo opportunity.

Click on a photo for more details about where the Church was located. We took all the information off of the slide itself which was written when the photo was taken.

There were many photos of these churches in his collection. He took photos every chance he could of the wood churches. He not only took photos of the wood churches, but any unique churches that he came across.

This is a collections of different buildings and old structures that was in the collection.  Since Fred always had his camera he stopped by old structures and building and snapped photos every chance he got. He loved old buildings and old unique homes.
