I nearly fell over when I saw this listing. How adorable! A one-room schoolhouse with roots on the Oregon Trail? Get out your #2 pencils, everyone, and let your imaginations run wild! Realtor Carole Benson of Coldwell Banker Chandler Real Estate gets an A++ for this absolutely charming schoolhouse-turned-home in Vinton, California. With three slate backboards, the school bell, and many more original details, this takes the cake for the most charming CIRCA house to-date. I’m in love!
From the listing:
This is the Old Vinton School House with permitted upgrades done to retain the original characteristics of the school. Still has 3 of the original slate black boards, the original school bell and memorabilia from the days when this was a functioning one-room schoolhouse. The light fixtures are actual antiques and the butcher block is out of the Virginia City butcher shop. School was moved to its present location in 1884. This is a true treasure of our beautiful area and was actually on the Oregon Trail!
