As luck would have it, the second oldest school in Clarksburg, California, built in 1883, remained unnoticed and relatively unharmed at the Noah Adams Lumber Yard since the school closed in 1923. Its significance has made it a natural focal point for coalescing interest in the preservation of the rich history of our region.

Dedicated to preserving the heritage and culture of our very precious and unique delta community.


About Us

We are a group of committed, and some might say crazy, local residents who are looking into our crystal ball and see a beautifully restored Schoolhouse that serves our community by preserving our history and helping us to share its richness with others.
