Several generations of children were educated in this one-room school, which covered grades one through eight from 1922 through 1967. In 1924, an addition to the building provided a small apartment for a teacher, since there was no housing available in the tiny community. After that, finding a teacher was never a problem, since they were well paid and housing was provided. The Elgin Schoolhouse State Historic Site features many of the school’s original items. The rest are authentic to the time period. Tours of the Schoolhouse are by appointment only. To schedule, call Kershaw-Ryan State Park at 775-726-3564.
