The schoolhouse can be accessed by a windy road with a small parking area or by walking a .6 mile easy trail from Metcalf Bottoms. The school house is very interesting. There is a cemetery outside and many educational items used inside the building. You...More

We were awed at the size of the boards used in building this schoolhouse. The road into it is a bit scary, very narrow with no room to pull over and pass oncoming cars. Next time, I'll walk. Go on a Tuesday when park volunteer...More
