This one-room schoolhouse was originally located at New and Smith Roads. It is an example of late 19th-century vernacular schoolhouse architecture with bonneted windows in the Italianate style. The building was used as a school until the early 1950s and is an excellent example of late 19th-century schoolhouse architecture. The double desks in the front of the schoolhouse are original furnishings. All others are from the late 19th century. Look for the recently restored rondel over the door identifying the school.
