Snake Corners Schoolhouse, New Petersburg, Ohio,

Near Paint Creek State Park

14265 U.S. Route 50

Bainbridge, Ohio   45612

Located amid the breathtaking scenery of the Paint Creek Valley, Paint Creek State Park features a large lake with fine fishing, boating and swimming opportunities. A modern campground and meandering trails invite outdoor enthusiasts to explore and enjoy the rolling hills and streams of this scenic area.  The Paint Creek region lies at the very edge of the Appalachian Plateau.  Construction of the dam on Paint Creek started in 1967, and the site was dedicated as a state park in 1972.  On the west side of the lake is Paint Creek Pioneer Farm. The pioneer farm includes a log house, collection of log buildings, livestock, gardens and fields that represent a typical farm of the early 1800s. Unfortunately, the place is abandoned and in a horrible state of repair.  Nearby is the very abandoned Snake Corners School, Paint Twp. District No. 7, which sits on Deer Park Road on a small hill just southeast of New Petersburg, obscured by trees and brush.
