Cold Springs, a rural one room school, was built near cold water springs on the Thomas Baskerville farm, near Mitchellville, Northern Sumner County. During the Civil War the school was a hospital for Confederate troops quartered at Camp Trousdale.

Howard McDowell, former student, mobilized efforts to move and restore the building. Structure donated by Jim & Bill McGothlin. School moved into Richland Park in September, 1975.

Official agreement signed by City of Portland, McGothlin families, and Highland Rim Historical Society, November 1, 1975.
