This is the rural schoolhouse near our home that Ron’s mother, grandmother and aunts attended when they lived in the house we now live in, in the Clearfield area.  Ron and I have been working for years to save this beautiful building. We’ve recently been given grants by Douglas County...
... to get it re-roofed, windows repaired and a fantastic professional paint job. In the future, we would like to re-build the missing bell tower and do interior renovation including replacing an area of the ceiling that has missing tin tiles that can be matched exactly to the ones still intact. Now we’ve received notification that it has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places.  We are very happy to have reached this point and wanted to share our big news with you!
