In 1852 this land was obtained from Owen Collins by the Pacific Railroad for a right of way and in 1863 a frame depot was built. Here members of the first school board met to draft the charter of the Kirkwood School District which was granted on February 17, 1865, three days before the ratification of the town charter by the State of Missouri. In 1893 the present stone building was built by Douglas Donovan, a Kirkwood general contractor. The site has been used for Kirkwood's fiftieth and one hundredth anniversary celebrations.
