Inscription. At the corner of Alameda Road at Bertram, sat the first Hacienda Schoolhouse built in the 1850s by mine owner Barron Forbes Co. to educate miners' and neighboring ranchers' children. About 85 students attended grades 1-8. In 1914, a second adjacent school replaced the original. Torn down in the 1930s, Paul Houret, Sr. & wife, Anna, then built their home on this site.
