The school would have served the children of ranchers and ranchers' employees. Its size reveals that enrollment was small, but without it, kids might have had a 10-mile walk each way. All grades were commonly taught in one room in such rural schools. With large landholdings, homes were far apart. This building shows the meaning of the American phrase "wide open spaces."

Of course, ranchers, thanks. Ten miles in the States is nothing I guess, a leisurely stroll, just a hundred yards here! See, yet again it gets my imagination going. Maybe rich rancher's kids off to school on a wagon.

Still, I suppose nowadays, they could get directions on their iPads as they go there on their motorised scooters! ߤ

Some rode horses or traveled in a horse-drawn predecessor of the school bus. More about one-room schoolhouses (external link)

Magnificent old building.
Photographed beautifully

So typical of many very early ones here.
The English certainly put their stamp on the landscape with buildings just like these.
