I returned to an old one-room schoolhouse in Door County to hopefully get a closer look at what remained of the building. The story of how I originally stumbled onto this structure is here.
I walked around the building, peering into a window or missing door here and there to get a photo of the decay within. At one point, I leaned a bit too heavily on the exterior wall while trying to photograph the interior and the entire building shifted a few inches.
The building had two entry doors, both of which opened into the single room inside. I imagine that boys and girls used separate doors to enter the schoolhouse, but don't quote me on that. This is one of the twin foyers that lead to the large open room beyond.
This is the room beyond:
Somewhere along the way, this building was used to stash a large number of paint cans and lids after much of the floor had been removed.
