Yes there was both a grade school, I think on Rt 147, and a high school. Grade school was 4 class rooms, each class room shared by 2 grades, one teacher for both. Had outdoor toilets too:-)) My first/second grade teacher, Mabel Flood, lived on Whiskey Run. In fact, many years later when she heard I'd gotten married she sent me a wedding gift. My class of 24 students was the largest class Batesville had to date. Basketball was a big sport, in fact, the only sport offered at the high school level. Soon after I left all the local community high schools closed and everyone was bused to a new large high school that served the county. I was fortunate to grow up those early years on a farm, learned hard work pays dividends.
I left the area in 1957, moved to central Ohio beginning of my freshman year in high school. I went to grade school in Batesville. I stay in touch with a cousin who lives down near Seneca Lake. I stopped through Quaker City a few years ago to check grave sites of old relatives. I have fond memories of life during a slower time.
What makes this site so great? Well, I think it's the fact that, quite frankly, we all have a lot at stake in this thing they call shale.
