According to a February 2, 1998 article in the Chronicle-Telegram, the school was built in 1889 and was used by township students until its closing in 1988. The article also noted that after the Browhelm Township Trustees purchased the old school, the original school bell was taken down from the top of the school and placed in front of the building.
Additions in 1905 and 1922 provided the school with its present appearance.

****I also couldn't resist grabbing a shot of the beautiful Brownhelm Congrational United Church of Christ on North Ridge Road located near the school. The sign in front of the church announced that the church is celebrating its 195th anniversary.
