The squeaks of chalk on slate now still
Gone is the clamor of the children’s trill
No more ink or leaf or dog-eared tome
The old schoolhouse has gone on home!
(R Weisser 2011)
Like the old schoolhouse in Fayette County Georgia, many old buildings that have outlived their usefulness are just fading away.
Perhaps I am overly sentimental. After all, progress is usually considered to be a good thing, especially in the world of real estate.
Historic preservation is costly and most of these sites are located on private property, but there is something about these place that have fallen out of their “time” that intrigues me and stirs up images of my own past.
And as we plunge deeper into the 21st century, the term “20th century” will gain more and more historical significance.
Time moves on. People come and go and places change.
But it doesn’t hurt to look back every now and then.
