HistoryEdit

During the nineteenth century, Center Valley Grade School was one of seven one-room schools serving Center.[2] It closed in the 1950s after Wisconsin eliminated one-room schools.[3]

In 2000, the Friends of the Center Valley Grade School purchased the building. The group spent seven years restoring the building and returning it to the appearance it had during the 1940s. It is open for scheduled tours.[4]
