Inscription. In 1934 Ralph Borsodi founded the School of Living to teach and demonstrate his principles of self-sufficient living. In 1937 this building was erected to house the School, with space for resident students and for seminars and lectures on small-scale farming, home- making arts, animal husbandry, woodworking, spinning and weaving. It taught "Decentralist Theory": family strength via economic independence.
