922 Dunn Station Rd, Prosperity, PA 15329   $24,000



The former one-room schoolhouse is actually in the tiny, rural village of Dunns Station. The community was founded when the Waynesburg and Washington Railroad opened in 1877. Stations were often named for the primary property owner who sold the right-of-way to the railroad. In this case, Daniel Dunn (1830–1886) owned around 340 acres.

At its peak in the 1920-1930s, about a dozen residences this one-room schoolhouse were located in Dunns Station. The railroad station housed the general store, post office, milk shed and privy.  A baseball field by the railroad station was the place to be during the 1920s through the 1940s for community excitement.
