Long Description:
The plaque says, "Orange's first public schoolhouse was completed here in Jun 1872. E. W. Squires, Amos Travis, and Elton R. Nichols, trustees for the Richland (Orange) School District had contracted for a building that was 24x26x14 feet, for the 70 public that were presented on Opening day. A. B. Chapman deeded the land to trustees for $1 and the benefit of education. Chapman's gift of the 2 1/2 acre site contained the restriction that it was to be used solely for the purpose of a public school. Stephen McPherson according to tradition, first taught here; Isabel Souires and Robert Furlong are known to have followed."
