In 1866, a small log school building was built on this site, with benches and desks hewn from logs. The first teacher was Miss Lillie Van Epps. It was a subscription school, which was maintained, and the teacher paid with tuition from the students. The school operated until 1868 when a new frame school was constructed on the southeast corner of 11th and Park.
