I just love little old school houses, like this one, the Miakka School House. According to an historic marker, it was constructed in 1914 for a whopping $1,400. It was the first public school to be constructed using school bonds in Manatee County, which is a little confusing because this site is located in Sarasota County. (Turns out, 7 years after the school opened, the area became known as Sarasota County.) Although the school house was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986, I'm not sure about its status now and whether it's open to the public.
