The Oregon School District was formed in 1856 and the schoolhouse stood near Dry Creek behind the old Pence Hotel. In 1872 the schoolhouse was relocated and rebuilt behind the existing corrals south of present day Durhan-Pentz Road. Following the relocation, the school district was renamed Messilla Valley. In 1879, the school was relocated to this site and operated until 1966. The building that once stood at this location was removed from this site in 1990. It was finally transported to its current location in Concow, California in 2002.
