The former Oak School, the historic schoolhouse structure was built in 1929 and remains intact.  When the school was purchased in 1976, ANS agreed not the change any of the building's exterior surfaces, a promise the Society has faithfully upheld.  It remains as it did then, a charming sienna-brick schoolhouse that recalls an earlier time.  Today, many former teachers, students, and parents still visit to reminisce about the former school and recall where the fishpond for kindergarten children used to be.
