The Free School Act of 1829 was passed through the efforts of Judge Willard Hall, Charles Marim, and others. Each school district received a generous subsidy for organizing & school free for children of the district.

This school was erected about 1836 and was in continuous use until 1930. Schools of this style were claimed to be very efficient, with each grade along the side of a wall, and the teacher in the center of the room.

The building was used as a community center in later years. It was given to the state for preservation in 1967 largely through the efforts of John W. Tarburton.
