    Enjoyed your site! Yesterday afternoon I drove around Fayette Co photographing old schools. Found 7 plus remnants of Weaver School (foundation, steps, pump & scattered wood.) Rich Hill School (Smithfield) needs work, but a family appears to be living there. West School (Uniontown on South St.) built about 1812 was restored some time ago by the Girl Scouts. The owners sell primitive prints, lamps, etc there and use proceeds towards maintainence. The one in Fairchance is now a Children’s Theatre. One visible from Rt 119 (Sunnyside School?) is unpainted but from distance appears to be in fairly good shape – grounds chained off. Havd heard of Gettamy – glad to have a photo now! Thanks again!

    Paul’s School was rebuilt (brick now) after tornado destroyed it decades ago. Haydentown School is now a Community Center. Gans School no longer exists, but the stones were used in the creation of a memorial for servicemen in the Pt Marion area. One out Rt 40 just west of the Uniontown Mall at the crest of a small hill is now an antique shop.
    Have heard of Gettemy – glad to have a photo now! My mother and 3 of 4 grandparents were teachers in Fayette Co. Thanks again!
