"This one-story, wood-frame Italianate building is Marin County's only unaltered one-room schoolhouse.

James Miller donated the land for the school. Mr. Miller was one of the first American settlers in California. He had arrived in 1844 with the Stephens-Townsend-Murphy party of approximately fifty men, women and children. While his wagon train was camped on the Oregon Trail at Independence Rock, Wyoming, his wife gave birth to a baby girl whom they named Ellen Independence Miller."
