Long Description:
"Built as the Great Depression began. Buffalo Valley School opened in 1929 and served continuously until 1966. It withstood flood and neglect as the once-thriving agricultural community gave way to urban consolidation. An important example of rural American school architecture. It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and still serves as an anchor of community life."
