One of the subjects very near to the top of my interest in local history lies in the old one room school houses that once dotted our very rural past, and the early 20th century schools that replaced them. Above is a photo of Maple Shade School prior to the construction of the familiar red brick building that was once located on White Horse Avenue. The original was black and white and I took the liberty of hand coloring it to give it a bit of realism. Below is an early 20th century class photo with many well known local White Horse residents.

My cousins went to the one room Harbourton school that still stands today. It's owned by the Newhouse family of the publishing empire that have their estate tucked back in there. It's nice that they maintain the building in it's original condition.
