dc.description Children on bicycles, presumably pupils at the old Joy No. 1 School on Gorsline Road, stand for a photo outside the building in a photo dated Oct. 15, 1946. An article in the Nov. 10, 1946, Enquirer and News noted that as well as being the first school established in Pennfield Township — narrowly edging out Cobblestone School — it was the township's largest with three classrooms. One of at least eight one- and two-room schools in the district, the school was in operation into the early 1960s, although it was leased for several years in the 1950s by the Gil Henke School under the direction of the Calhoun County Association for the Mentally Retarded. en_US
