Sheriff Samuel Potter donated the land for this public school in 1872. In September of
1873 classes for grades 1 through 8 were held in two large classrooms on the first floor.
The upstairs functioned as a multi-use room and community hall. In December of 1961
the condemned school building was sold by auction to the highest bidder. In March of
1962 Alfred Hitchcock used the school in his film, "The Birds".

The old school sat vacant and condemned until June of 1966, when Tom and Mary
Taylor purchased it. With the help of their three children, they lovingly restored the
Italianate structure to its original splendor.
The 6.000 square foot space is still owned by the Taylor Family. The old school serves as a residence for three generations of their family. Yes, they live here.
This property is private property. No Trespassing.
