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.
