Flint School is gone.
The Flint School sat there at the corner of Park and Flint Roads from the 1920s until a few weeks ago. The school had NOT been used since the 1960s. I believe since 1963. On a site called 'Forgotten Ohio on the page about Flint' it says of the Flint School building "The small school building where Flint's children attended class is still standing, neatly boarded up, in a park at the corner of Park Street and Flint Road."
Something about the old school public school building that served the Flint and Sharon Township area reminded me of a shrine. I believe the cornerstone says 1926.
The Flint School building in March 2010.

The grass will grow this summer and any scars the building and it's demolition left will be gone soon. The building was razed in March 2011. The photos of the corner stone, the name over the door and the front of the building were taken in March 2010. The old school building, that served Flint, Ohio in the past was owned by the City of Columbus and they razed it a few weeks ago. The grounds became a City of Columbus Park a number of years ago. I drove by the intersection a few times when there was a pile of rubble. I wish I would have got a photo. The first time I saw the pile of rubble I was surprised. It was after dark so I thougt I would come back by and get a photo.
An earlier Sharon Township School, Slate Hill School on Flint Rd. is now a home. It has been used as a home for years. The area in northern Franklin County is mostly annexed to the City of Columbus now. The area has been part of the Worthington school district for years. The Worthigton area today, Flint, Ohio
The Flint train station was relocated to east of Sancus Blvd. at some point. It is used as a home now. The brick builiding with the word Flint on it was a department store, Crowders at the railroad stop that was Flint, Ohio.
The Village of Flint and the surrounding area is part of the Far North Columbus area, which includes City of Columbus neighborhoods in Franklin and Delaware Counties.
