Long Description:
Regarding Little Red Schoolhouse.
In July, 1897, a Brick Yard was in operation. By the end of August, there were 200,000 bricks on fire in the kiln. The brick was to be use in the new Kingman Public School,the Little Red Schoolhouse.
Kingman’s new public school was opened at the southwest corner of Fourth and Oak Streets. The red brick structure was destined to have a long useful live in Kingman. It replaced the earlier wooden structure which had occupied the same site. The older schoolhouse was sold for $250 and moved to the area where St. Mary’s Church now resides. The building was converted into a residence.
The new school included a lecture room of 20’ x 55’, two classrooms of 20’ x 24’, a hall of 8’ x 55’, a teacher’s room of 6’ x 8’ and a cloakroom of 6’ x 11’6”. The building cost was about $4,900 and $1,100 was used to furnish the new building.
