This past Friday we had to go to Kansas City.
Since my husbands surgery at the VA Hospital there last August (09) we have had to travel there approx. 6 times. It's a 3 hour drive one way.
The good part about the trip is that we have to travel an area that I love. For the most part Kansas is pretty flat but
this particular stretch of the highway passes through beautiful rolling hills.
Along our route is a beautiful old stone school house with two outhouses standing in long grass just off the highway. I have always wanted to stop and take
pictures but we always seem to be in a hurry on the way
to the appointment and on the way back we just want
to get home.
This time however...we stopped!
We had to sqeeze through this gate opening.
It was well worth the effort...it is a beautiful old
Built in 1896
It has two out houses.
A girls and a boys.
Here is the first...
here is the second.
A few details of the first outhouse
The photos above and below are the second outhouse.
Such beautiful details.
It was certainly built to last for many years.
It was very obvious that the building is loved as the roofs
of all three buildings has been replaced with good materials.
It would be interesting to know it's history.
This old school is a bit fancier than the one we used
to see on the TV show 'Little House On The Prairie'
but I could picture Laura and Mary
being very happy going to school here.
Have a wonderful day.
