Large windows with transoms, two stories and a basement with windows are hidden behind large pine trees. Hipped roof, brackets in the eaves, large chimneys (rhyolite and brick) and lightning rods top the building. The building was built in 1889 and burned down in 1978. The school was built in 1897 of rhyolite. Only one other structure (most likely a house) is visible.
