Long Description:
This school is still used as a community center and my family has had many events and reunions in this building. Built in 1896, the inside still resembles a typical one classroom school house. Loads of pictures and history on the inside of the school, which closed upon completion of the Utopia School about a mile from this location.
I will get some pictures of the inside of this building the next time I am inside.
The marker reads as follows
