An Old Forgotten School House on Cream Ridge Road, Township Highway 895

While on our Barnes Cemetery Adventure, we accidentally found
a BONUS!   This old building sits right beside the road.  Never one to be shy, I walked up to the owners house and asked him about it.  He said it was built around 1866, and was at one time a one room school house!  He took us inside and showed us around. It once had a fireplace, but later was heated by an old pot belly stove (pictured with Briana).    The owners  are working on their own to try to save it.  On the outside of the building you will find carved initials of the children who attended school here.  I am looking for information about this old building.  It's name.  How long it was a school.  Anything.
Like I said:  Columbiana County is full of lost history.  G12 is working to find it!  And any ghosts we happen to find along the way!
