Concord Township Celebrates 200 Years in 2022!
Concord Township’s Bicentennial year is 2022. Each month, we will feature several photos depicting Concord’s history. This month, we celebrate early images of our beloved Old Stone School. If you have pictures of life in Concord Township throughout the decades that you want to share, please send them to
Old Stone School
Concord’s third school called Stone School marked the beginning of the District System of one room schools located in the township. Each school would be within a two mile walk for pupils. Prior to an 1825 Ohio law accessing taxes, schools were by subscription. ‘Schoolhouse Number One’ on Ravenna Road was contracted from James McEuen for the price in 1840 of $200.

On October 15, 1858, Samuel H. Judd leased a half acre for $50.00. Located on the corner of Girdled Road and Route 608 the property became Judd’s Corner School. This picture was taken in 1913. The scholars as the students were often called attended this district 6 schoolhouse until its closure in 1923.
