One-room school located in the one-time village of Bloomington located a mile and a half northeast of Ames. Photo taken in 1981 at time a delegation from the Ames Heritage Assn. (with permission of Olson family who own the farm where old school was situated) removed the wainscoting for use in the restoration of the Hoggatt School on the grounds of Meeker Elementary in Ames. Information about Bloomington School can be found in the Winter 1986-87 Ames Intelligencer (newsletter of the Ames Heritage Assn.). The school collapsed in November 1986 after standing empty for more than forty years. Gentleman in the photo is Rodney Fox, representative of the Heritage Assn., who made arrangements for removal of wainscoting.
