Shining White House on a Hill

I was struck by the juxtaposition of a glorious, bright day and the decayed state of this old building, which I believe must have once been a one-room school house.

Abandoned roadside schoolhouse, east of Hinckley, Minn.

Update: 10:31 a.m., May 10, 2011: A bit of Web research suggests that it was indeed the Cloverdale school house, District 90, and that it was in use from 1913 until it was closed in 1964. Nineteen years ago, Earl Leatherberry took a photo of the same building standing in virtually the same tracks as me. That photo can be viewed here.
