Lucy Run

The nearby Lucy Run School (1885) is an example of
the one-room schoolhouses that served rural Clermont
County from 1800 to 1930. Before an Ohio law
assessing taxes for public schools was passed in
1825, the first schools were by subscription.
Public schools were strengthened with the Ohio
School Act of 1853. This act made the townships
separate districts and created school sub-districts.
Lucy Run was Sub-District No. 4 in Batavia Township.
By 1879, there were 143 township schools in the
county. The era of the one-room schoolhouse came
to an end with the consolidation of school districts
in the 1930s. By 1936, only 16 one-room schools
were still in operation.
