Abandoned Schoolhouse in Lambton County

Published

I would have to say one of my favourite types of abandoned places to photograph and explore are old schoolhouses, and for me the more decrepit the better. On one of my last exploring trips for 2015 I came across and old run-down one room schoolhouse in Lambton County. This old decaying building was just magnificent! It’s not to often you come across old brick schoolhouses in this kind of abandoned condition. Most of these small rural one room schoolhouse’sĀ were sold off and converted to residential homes in the 1960’s when Ontario adopted the central school system.

It was very mild this day but freakishly windy, infact the wind was so strong that it blew over my tripod with camera on it, thankfully no damage šŸ™‚ This abandoned school is locked up, however large holes in the front door and exposed windows made it easy to get a glimpse of the inside of this truly charming abandoned schoolhouse. The interior was in relatively good condition a look back to what this simple classroom looked like over 50 years ago when its doors were closed for good. Its was like a snapshot frozen in time. There is still a chalkboard mounted at the front of the class room and what looks like to be the original floor. The plaque on the front of the building containing the date is deterioratedĀ and hard to read a definitive date of when the school was built, I can make out 1885, or 1886. Another feature of this old derelict schoolhouse is it had separateĀ girls and boys entrances quite common for larger schools of this era but rarerĀ on these smaller one room schoolhouses.

Out back of the school there was a old bridge that crossed a small river, however no road led to the now abandoned bridge. One can only assume this bridge was used back when horses and carriages brought the children to school.

Earlier this summer while we were on our way to revisit “The Screaming Tunnel” we came across this old abandoned schoolhouse just down the road from it. It looks like at some point it has been converted to a residence as many old schoolhouses have been. It now once again sits abandoned waiting for its next chapter.

I must start this post off apologising for the lack of updates the past 6 weeks. I was in an auto accident and a broken right arm made photography and computer work difficult. Things should be getting back to normal over the next few weeks šŸ™‚ Here are some photos of an old abandoned schoolhouse in Kent County Ontario taken on a beautiful sunny afternoon. This old schoolhouse was located just outside of Blenheim. Its now boarded up with “No Trespassing” signs posted. The location of this abandoned schoolhouse can be found on our abandoned locations page.
