Inscription. Built by the citizens of Markleeville in 1882 it remained in operation until 1929 when the new Webster School was completed. In 1966, with the old school on the verge of total destruction, the Historical Society of Alpine County began to raise funds for the restoration of the school. Work began immediately with money and labor donated by the members of the Society and other interested people. In 1968 the project was completed.

Originally dedicated Sept. 17, 1966 — Rededicated and plaqued Sept. 15, 1979 by Snow-Shoe Thomson Chapter No. 1827 of the Ancient and Honorable Order of E Clampus Vitus.
