The Elk Run School District borders Rutland Township on the north and Columbia Township in Bradford County on the east. The school is near the top of a very steep hill. Later than 1875, one of the Smith women married a Richmond, so the place labeled C. G. Smith on the map was under the name of Richmond, and the hill is now called Richmond Hill.

This Elk Run View was taken by Joyce M. Tice in 1998 from the top of the schoolhouse hill. In the valley below, the Elk Run Methodist Church (1864-1992), the East Sullivan Grange which closed in 1996, and the old "Elmer Welch Place,"  the original of which burned in the 1970s, are visible. The hill in the center is called Round Top, and the western half of it is owned by me. The photo shows it from the east. My parents still live there on the other side of that hill, and it was originally purchased by my paternal grandparents in 1917.[Update - I have lived in that house now since 2002] On my father's first day of school about 1926, he stood up and announced to all, "That's my Pa's Round Top." The evergreen in the foreground is at the back of the property where my maternal grandmother once lived, in fact she may have planted it. A photo on another of the Elk Run School pages shows her with the Elk Run school behind her. Another interesting story is that about 1925, a terrible wind storm came through. It was so strong it blew the barn door against my grandfather and knocked him out. It also blew his broad brimmed hat all the way from the bottom of the western side of the hill, up over the top of Round Top and back down to the eastern side where Elmer Welch found it the next day. Obviously the trees that are there now were not. The evergreens near the very top of Round Top, just down the eastern slope from the crest which is still clear, were planted in the 1930s by my grandfather, Lee Tice, and my father and uncle.
