Built in 1867, this one room rural school has served as the center of community life in Russell Flats for over 130 years. Constructed by Scotch - Irish settlers who arrived here in the early 1850s, the school has also functioned as the local Presbyterian church and the Westfield Town Hall. The community is named for the first settlement family, the Russells. They found the area's fertile soil and nearby springs perfect for farming. Today, several descendants of the Scotch - Irish settlers still own or occupy their original family farms.
