In early 1860 the school lot was purchased, building plans selected, and the cornerstone laid. By fall the building was completed by a Mr. Donegan at a total cost of $4898. Dedication ceremonies were held, as was a grand calico party to raise money for a school bell. The school was renovated in 1872 and again in 1881. The school was closed in 1937 as it did not meet earthquake safety standards. In 1947 the State purchased the site from the Columbia Historic Park Association for $1.00. The old school building was restored in 1960 for $60,000, most of which was raised by the students and the California Teacher's Association. Dedicated March 8, 1997Frank A.
