This school was built in the early 1900's and is now owned by Mr. Rodger Hasbargen. When talking with him about the building I asked him how he came to own it and he told me when he was a little boy and attending the school he would sometimes get into trouble and one day after getting into a bit of trouble he told the teacher that he would someday own this school, so when the opportunity came along he bought it. The school is in pretty rough condition, I think in its day it must have been beautiful. There is alot of water damage from the roof leaking, which is too bad the hard woods floors are amazing. Light fixtures are falling from the ceiling, animals have made it their home and there is dirt and dust everywhere. That's why I processed most of the picture's in black and white, the mess seemed less noticeable. The most spectacular part of this school is the abandoned piano, it made me a tad sad when I saw it sitting there all alone amongst the dirt and debree. I invisioned the joy it must have once brought to the classroom full of eager and maybe not so eager (tee hee hee) little boys and girls. There is still sheet music and notes left in the bench. When Katie sat done to play, I was amazed at how great it still sounded and how awesome this girl can play the piano. I loved watching her fingers move across the keys so effortlessly, her beautiful posture and stunning smile. She is such a graceful piano player, it was a pleasure watching and photographing her. The whole afternoon with her and her mom Laura was a blast. Thank you ladies for the memories...
