Inscription. The first schoolhouse in the area was built south of Danville in 1858. In 1867, a new grammar school was built on this Front Street site. This building served until being razed in 1896 and replaced by the one-room schoolhouse pictured. It was located between the two trees 220 feet behind this monument. These early schools served grades one through eight. School days began at 8:00 AM and ended at 4:00 PM. This school was closed in 1922 with the opening of the Grammar School on Love Lane.
