Long Description:
From the Wills School website at (visit link) :

"The Wills School was built in 1875. The last class to occupy the schoolhouse left in 1955. Since then, multiple groups have collaborated to restore and maintain the schoolhouse. The interior furnishings down to the pot-bellied stove and pictures of Washington and Lincoln are original. Inside are the original desks, chalkboard, various schoolbooks, and a visitor log. "

There is little online data available for this school. I lived near this township for over 40 years and never knew it existed and at this time, it doesn't appear that tours are offered very often.
