In 1879, Andrew Cathey donated land to establish an elementary school. James Cliff directed the construction of the one room schoolhouse located about one mile southwest of the location where the schoolhouse now stands.

Over the years the schoolhouse served as a church, community hall for dances. Hard time parties and a meeting place for the Home Guard during WW II. (The Home Guard were aircraft spotters stationed at the Charles Gordo Ranch where there was a "telephone." With this information in enemy hands, it probably discouraged any plans of invasion of the United States.)

Lighting for the schoolhouse was by coal lamps until 1947 when electricity finally reached the area.
