Windy visit to the Highland School

The one-room Highland Schoolhouse, which sits on a hilltop along Highway 2 between Waterville and Coulee City, is a favorite landmark of travelers and history buffs.

On a recent visit, the building looked abandoned and timeworn — graffiti, charred walls, missing siding — but still stood proud with its classic lines. Strong winds fanned surrounding wheat to give a kinetic frame to this historic structure.
