AWTHS Seeking Info on Old School Houses

The Arcanum Wayne Trail Historical Society needs your help. We are hosting a program September 8 on old One and Two Room School Houses in Southern Darke County. While we have a good collection of photos from Twin and Van Buren Townships we are still seeking photos of Castine School, off Rt. 722 and Butler Township old school houses.

Also if you live in an old school house, attended or taught at one time we would love to hear your stories. Also any information about your old school house on your property as far as age of building and when it closed or was sold would be helpful.

Information or photos can be e-mailed to If the photo can't be scanned or sent digitally please e-mail or call 937-692-6462 so arrangement can be made to copy the photo or to mail or arrange pick up. Limited copies can be made at the historical society.

We are particularly looking for photos from these townships:

Monroe: Cassell or Burnice and Miller's Grove with the Brumbaugh name; Swamp Poodle located near Schnorf-Jones and Stocker Roads.

Twin: Brown located on Grubbs-Rex Road near Gordon-Landis Road and Zenzer (Zenger) located at intersection of Rt. 503 and Darke-Preble County Line Road.

Butler: District #9 located Rt. 722 and east of Rt. 726; District #3 located on Arcanum-Hollansburg Road west of Weaver's Station Road and east of Harter Road.

We would love to hear your story.
