Inscription.  Built in 1907 the buildings first floor was used for classrooms while the second floor was a meeting room for a fraternal lodge. Although the building served as a public school offering three years of high school classes, it was privately built and funded by the Harborton Council No. 108 of the Junior order of United Mechanics.

It continued to serve as a High School until 1921 when it was changed into an Elementary School. It was later closed in 1944 due to declining attendance.

The white marble stone below was the original corner stone that was located on the right side of the high school. To learn more about the high school and about Harborton, visit the Harborton History Museum.
