What do you recommend for the below ?
  1. building #1 has working "analog" OLD
      non-VOIP phone line and working phones
  2. building #2, about 1/4 mile from building #1 has NO
      phone line, but does have FIBER from building #1

Maybe something like the below
   1. put http://www.smithgear.com/eng-freestyl2.html "MAIN" BASE in building #1
   2. put associated phone BASES in building #2

I do NOT want to spend money running OLD phone wire to building #2

Thats a beast! Incredible range! It would be one option.

Another option would be a Linux server running Asterisk, handling one or more of your analog connections to the Telco, and talking VOIP through the fiber link to IP Phones on the other end. May get more expensive depending on how many phones, will be more feature rich, will help you migrate toward IP Telephony, will require more technical effort.

You can switch building 1 over to IP phones, then it doesn't matter where you are - you just need an internet connection. My office line has extensions in 3 different continents!

Hello Finance Teacher !

If you want to continue using the ANALOG lines of building #1, you can leverage your fiver and get the below:

Building #1: ATA Adapter

Building #2:
http://www.amazon.com/Yealink-YEA-W52P-Business-Cordless-Phone/dp/B00BIV3Y26

Been doing it many times, it works great and can grow to many more wireless devices in building#2.
