Readers with a passion for history knew where to find the detail in last week's clue.

Doug and Babette Dow of Milford writes that it's the "Schocopee School, the one-room school house at Apple Valley, originally located at the corner of Schocopee and Fire Tower Roads, Milford Township. When the school was no longer in use, it was moved to its present location and is on public display."

Bob and Judy Brumbaugh of Milford add that it "was moved to this location in 1976 by the Milford Historical Society. The school house still has an original slate board and teacher's desk. It is now used as a tourist center."

Pike County Commissioner Matt Osterberg of Milford also gets an A-plus.

Everyone goes to the top of the class!
