Inscription.  Constructed in 1895-96 by Quincy Adams Wooster and Junius Brown, this building originally served as a schoolhouse and community gathering place for the Wooster community. It became a part of the Goose Creek School System in 1919. The structure was moved from its original site in 1937 to an adjacent lot on the same property and used as a classroom, cafeteria, and music room. It was closed as an educational facility for a final time in 1980. The building was acquired in 1986 by the Bay Area Heritage Society and moved here for use as a museum.
