Long Description:
Though this school is shown as Stillwater, it is actually about 6 miles south of Stillwater, and 2.5 miles north of Highway 33, between Coyle and Perkins.

This is a one-story frame schoolhouse which has been very well preserved and is currently used as a meeting place for area residents. The clapboard is newly painted, and a handicap ramp has been added on the east side. The roof is gabled with composition shingles. There are no windows on the east side which faces 3310Road. There is a single entry door on the south, and a entrance gable on the north which has been re-sided. The main entrance on the east has a single wood door beneath a small gabled porch roof. There are no windows on the north, south or east, however the rear of the school n the west has six small one-over-one windows. On the south side of the school some very old playground equipment is still intact, and a well pump which is no longer connected.
