Caesar Creek Township School - Abandoned by Sherman Cahal

Caesar Creek Township School

Caesar Creek School, located in Caesar Creek Township in rural Greene County, Ohio, was constructed as a high school in 1908.1 It began serving elementary students in 1927, and a small addition was constructed in 1957 that included two classrooms, two indoor restrooms and a gymnasium. Caesar Creek closed in 1967 and was sold to George Gragsby, a local farmer.2

A minister attempted to convert the school into a private residence two years after the school’s closure but was unsuccessful in his attempts due to local zoning code. The building is currently for sale.



  1. Could you get one of these schools or buildings and purchase them?

  2. Why was he unsuccessful at it? Where can you find information on purchasing a building like this?
