Prattsville, New York: Partridge Family Bus Replica

The brightly painted school bus was a Get-Happy memory trigger for a generation of teen TV watchers. On wheels, in a junkyard, so it may not be around for long.

Partridge Family Bus Replica

The Partridge Family Bus replica (used for promotions) has been moved from Ashland to Prattsville, where it's now parked at Lexington Scrap Metal Recycling. This is a junkyard. As I pulled in, a woman came out of the office. I asked if she minded if I took some pics of the bus. She told me to hurry and was not particularly friendly. I snapped a few pics and was on my way. I should have told her to, "C'mon, get happy!"

I went there yesterday and did not find the bus.

Always be prepared for heartbreak when traveling to see an attraction on wheels, such as a bus. They can move to other places without warning.

Parked outside Aaron's Antiques II Brewed Awakenings Wine & Beer Lounge is a replica of The Partridge Family bus. Apparently it was used to promote the show, but is not the bus that was used in the show. Such a strange and groovy sight in this tiny town in the middle of nowhere.

Tipster John, an art director, points out that the bus was inspired by Piet Mondrian's "Composizione 1921."

As of October 9, 2016, the bus is there, although in bad shape. Looks like junk stored inside.
