In recent decades, a realtor, homebuilder and pediatricians had their offices nestled into the building near Smokey Row Road and State Road 135.

Multiple renovations by those owners hide the building’s original use: a single-room schoolhouse, known in the 1800s and 1900s as School No. 6 in White River Township.

Memories of the schoolhouse will soon be relegated to pictures. The building is scheduled to be demolished by March 28 to make way for a state road construction project to improve safety at the intersection, state department of transportation spokesman Harry Maginity said.
