Title

Monmouth District School

Description

The Monmouth District school was a two-room, wooden building constructed in 1886 . Oregon State Normal School contracted its use as the model school to provide practice training for future teachers. A year later a second story with two additional classrooms was added. Since contractors only painted the new addition and left the existing paint on the original part, the school earned the nickname "the Patch School."
