Neff's One-Room Schoolhouse

This quaint one-room schoolhouse is located on Bastian road between Noble Street and Baldy Road on the outskirts of Kutztown, PA closer to Lyons, PA.  It was built in the 1880s and used up until 1955 when the Kutztown School District consolidated their fifteen one-room schoolhouses into a larger school that could house all students.  It laid dormant until Bill and Doll Fox purchased the property in 1972 and spent several years renovating it as a second home.  Since then, they have also purchased another one-room schoolhouse, the Eagle Point school, on the other side of Kutztown.   The Fox's have decorated the interior of the Neff School with antiques and symbols commemorating life in Kutztown.   Mr. Fox is known for his topiary gardens he curates outside both schoolhouses.

Nikon D7000 and Nikon 28-70mm F2.8 AFS lens @ 35mm.  Aperture priority mode F11, ISO 100, center-weighted metering.  Camera was tripod mounted and shutter triggered with Nikon infrared remote.   Post processed in Lightroom 4. I also shot this separately on medium format film using a Rolleiflex Automat but have yet to get those photos back from the lab.
