Inscription.  The one- room school was a common sight in rural Ohio in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Locust Grove No. 12 housed elementary school classes until the late 1920’s on it’s original site; S. Bird Road at E. Possum Road in Clark County, near Springfield, Ohio. The consolidation of rural school districts led to the end of these one-room schools. Locust Grove School was dedicated in Carillon Park in 1976. (logo)
