Ox Ridge School fifth-graders recently visited the site of the old school that existed between the mid-1800s and the 1920s.

While the school now is on Mansfield Road, the former school was situated on Middlesex Road opposite Hansen Road.

Stone steps, an abandoned well, and some slabs of stone are all that physically remain of the old one-room schoolhouse. Using a camcorder, the fifth-graders recorded footage to create an original video for the Ox Ridge Film Club.
