Inscription. This property was donated by Adolph and Catherine Van Maren to accommodate this one-room Sylvan School House constructed in 1862 and relocated to this site in 1927. This property was on the northeast side of the former Van Maren Ranch, which covered more than 1000 acres and was farmed continuously from 1854 to the 1980ís. The present building has undergone few changes from its original construction.

The property was donated so that The Citrus Heights Community Club could better serve the community as a social center and forum for community growth issues. The Citrus Heights Historical Society is managing the property operating costs and county taxes are supported by rentals.
