One of my favorite things to do is explore the back-roads in search of abandoned houses to photograph. Although I have found some great ones over the years it has always been on my bucket-list to find an old schoolhouse with the traditional bell tower like I've seen portrayed in movies and TV. I had started to think they didn't exist here in Alberta since all the schools I had found were just simple square boxes with no architectural appeal. When I heard about Farming Valley School near Oyen, built in 1914, I knew this was the schoolhouse I had been searching for. I was super excited to finally get the chance to see this beauty in person when I was in the area earlier this month. With such an impressive bell tower I can only image the size of the bell that once hung there and how it's toll could be heard across the countryside.
