One of the remaining one-room brick schoolhouses in Northern Arizona was built in 1900 of fired brick.

The school was named for Charles Shumway who settled in Spring Valley (now Silver Creek Valley) in 1878 and built a grist mill for wheat and corn farmers.

A typical class in the early years was made up of 20-25 students in grades from 1-8; older students helped teach the younger ones.

The schoolhouse served as a social center for weddings, funerals, dances and church services until 1948.
