The first school house in Greenwood was located yards from this location. It burned down in 1855. In 1858 the Greenwood School District was established and this one room school house was built by the community. It remained open from 1859 to 1954. This building has also served the Greenwood community as a meeting hall, a polling site, an emergency shelter and the old school bell was used to alert inhabitants in the area to natural disasters. The school was closed in 1954 and all the students from Greenwood were transferred to Cool. After the school closed, the bell was incorporated into the California State Historic Landmark for the town of Greenwood. The property was purchased by the community in 1957. It remains open as a public meeting place and park. The preservation efforts of the Greenwood Civic Organization, The Georgetown Divide Recreation District and the Native Sons of the Golden West, has preserved this piece of California's history so that in may continue to benefit the community.
