Close to home #4: Centerville Schoolhouse

Adjacent to the field where I photographed the tree at sunset is Randall Oaks park. In the park is a restored schoolhouse that dates back to the 1880s. It used to stand on the other side of Randall Road and had fallen into disrepair. It was moved in sections across the road to the park where it was rehabbed and now serves as a reminder of how things were a century ago.

we need to get you paid for the blog use of the photo - I'm still using it: People love it! My production director was going to contact you as well regarding the front of the magazine - not sure if you have schoolhouse photos that would work but if so, we definitely want to buy them. Please email me at and copy as well so we can square up with you.
