"Until 1967, Calwood also had its own elementary school. At that time, Calwood became a part of the reorganized school district, North Callaway, for the north part of the county. Area elementary students now attend kindergarten through eighth grade at Hatton McCredie Elementary School or Williamsburg Elementary and grades nine through 12 at North Callaway High School.

"The old schoolhouse became the Edith Benskin Community Center in 1980 in honor of Edith Benskin, the last teacher at the school. It is currently rented as a venue for many small events and has hosted the Fall Festival, known for its mutton, the first weekend in October since 1980." ~ Kingdom of Callaway Historical Society
