Fruitvale School
Fruitvale School District, formed in 1888, bought a one and half acre site from Jeremiah and Elizabeth Fowler on which this school was built in 1889. Lewis Gage was the first teacher here. Additions to the structure were made in 1912 and 1927. The school remained open until 1946. This building continues to be an important meeting place of the community
