The original intent for the schoolhouse was that classes were held on the first floor, with the second floor being used as the gymnasium and auditorium. As the population increased, both floors were pressed into service as classrooms. The school held its last classes in 1951, but has subsequently been used as a teen center, play area, and summer camp site. To schedule a tour, please contact us at least two business days in advance or call (319) 351-5738.
