Diehl’s one-room school, located in North Codorus Township, York County, was one of 300 such schools that representated a way of life for generations. John ‘Otts’ Hufnagel of the Glen Rock Historic Preservation Society, sent this image along with a narrative of one-room school life by another local student of history, the late Roger E. Shaffer. One-room schools continue to fascinate folks, so yorktownsquare.com profiles them in an occasional series.
