Clearview Schoolhouse

I really like this little two-room school house.  The front facade is very different than the typical rural schoolhouse.  It looks to me that the person that built it had a good sense of design and proportion.  There are even nice wood details around the windows.  The building sits forlornly in a fallow field about one hundred yards off Highway 304 about 5 miles south of Bastrop.  I’ve visited with the archivist at the Bastrop County Historical Society Museum about Clearview.   She was able to tell me that she has a copy of a Teacher’s Daily Register dated 1952 and undated documents referencing Mable Echols as teacher and B. O. Washington as assistant.
