The Schoolhouse was built as a one-room schoolhouse in 1861 and owned by the school district for over 100 years. In the 1960’s, it became a studio and living space. Additions were added in the late 70’s and early 80’s by renowned Prairie Style architect, Herb Fritz and is now under the stewardship of the DePauw family. See the location here.
Drinks (including beer) will be available for donations.
