Citrus Heights in Sacramento County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
The original school had white clapboard siding (narrow wooden siding) and green shutters. The interior consisted of a single classroom with two small closets. In addition to serving as a schoolhouse, the building was used for community meetings, church services, dance parties and a voting place.
In 1926 Guy Van Maren spearheaded a successful bond issue to construct a new Sylvan School. In order to make room for the new and larger facility, the original schoolhouse was relocated to Sylvan Road to be used as a community center. It was donated to the community in 1927 by Adolph Van Maren and is held in a private trust.
