Inscription.  
Built in 1900, this country schoolhouse was originally located in Smith Hollow, eight miles north of Dayton. It served grades 1 thru 8 in the Smith Hollow School District #24 until 1933, when the district was consolidated with Dayton.
On into the 1980s, the school continued to be used as a meeting place and community center. The structure, which was donated to the Blue Mountain Heritage Society by Van and Deb Seney, was moved in 2010 to this location on Dayton's Historic Pathway.
Grants and donations paid for its restoration.
