Little Red Schoolhouse

little red schoolhouse whitneyville, maine

The back road to Machias takes you through Whitneyville, Maine where this little red schoolhouse sits up on the rise. There’s something very charming about this school built in 1868 that now serves as the town’s library.

In my mind’s eye I can see days of horses and wagons, children walking to school with tin lunch pails in hand, and the school bell ringing from the tower.

  1. Hello!!

    I just love this photo!! I found it by a search and I wanted to use it on my blog as a header, so I traced it down to this blog post. This is a new blog that I’m starting up and this fits my theme perfectly. The photo is already in my header and I’ve fully given you credit down at the bottom of the page. If you’d prefer that I don’t use this photo or that I also add credit directly on the photo, please let me know. I too am a hobby photographer, so I know how important it is to get approval and give credit.

    Please let me know and I truly appreciate your photography!!
