Travis County landowner Peter Carr Wells (1856-1913) donated a plot of land on his ranch to the Willow Ranch School District in 1894. Four years later, a school was established on this site. Most of those who attended were the children of Swedish immigrant farmers; some sharecropped the P. C. Wells land. Students learned basic skills as well as Texas history, geography, art, and physical education, and participated in interscholastic league competitions. Another room was added in 1906, providing space for community clubs and other social gatherings as well as for classes. The school closed in 1938 and the students were transferred to the Kimbro School District.
