Belfast School
State Route 73
Belfast, Ohio

Belfast is an unincorporated community in Highland County, in the U.S. state of Ohio. The seat of Jackson Township, it was founded in 1834, and named after Belfast, in Ireland. The post office was first established under the name Bell in 1845, but the name was changed to Belfast in 1910, and the post office closed in 1944.  The Belfast school, built in 1923, originally housed all twelve grades.  My grandmother taught there for many years, from around 1960 until her retirement in 1972.  After Jackson Township voted to join the Bright Local School District, the school was eventually closed. It now sits abandoned and is currently for sale.
