I found a picture of Rockport Grammar School 1800s.
It is a postcard made up by Beverly Amstutz of Bluffton Ohio.
I was trying to figure out where that school would have been.
On the 1880 Allen County Atlas,in Monroe Twp, I see a School No 6 and was wondering if that was it. No 6 was in section 13 on the west bottom of the section. No roads were marked on that map, so I am not sure what road that would be, but it looks like maybe Thayer and Hillville Roads.
The picture shows a two story brick building with children playing in front of it. There is a small white shed behind the school. They are several large posts, perhaps with fencing. Picture is very unclear.I would be especially interested in the ones in Monroe and Richland Townships
Is there information or pictures of the Allen County schools in the 1800's anywhere that someone could do a little research on them?
