Little Red Schoolhouse

A fine example of the district school building common to Ohio in the early years of the twentieth century. This two-room, red-brick schoolhouse was completed in 1913. Accommodating elementary school children in east Berea and adjacent areas of Middleburg Township, the Berea "Little Red Schoolhouse" replaced an original wood-frame, one-room school built in the late nineteenth century on this same site. No longer active as a school, the building was used by the Berea Fine Arts Club from 1933 to 1980, and subsequently by the Berea Jaycess for meetings and community projects. This historic structure has been carefully restored and opened to public gatherings by the Berea Little Red Schoolhouse Foundation, inc. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.
