About 1890, a vernacular two-story, frame building was constructed for the school. It is sheathed in weatherboard and set upon a brick pier foundation. The school was sponsored and supported by the Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A. until 1933. From 1933 it was supported by Goodwill Presbyterian Church until 1960 when it was consolidated with the public schools.[2][3]
