The Capay-Langville School
1874 - 1980

For nearly a century the Capay School bell summoned children to one of California's longest existing schools located and functioning on the same site. Uniquely the school's basement served as a playroom during foul weather. In 1928, it unified with the Cadenasso School—another early day grammar school district. Students learned and progressed through nine grades offered by the pre-Dewey educational system according to individual abilities. It represented the hopes and trials of the pioneers and immigrants in building the west and providing an education for their children.

I Saw The Marker

I am trying to find a map with the exact location of the school. The marker itself is in the town of Capay, on the right as one drives into town from the east.
