Landmarks, Historical Buildings, Architectural Buildings, The Large Brick Fireplace in the Schoolroom, The Tongue and Groove Woodwork in the Fireplace Wall, Wood Framing, The Ten-Inch-Wide Floorboards & White Plaster Walls

The two-story building was built in Georgian Revival style and boasted a single schoolroom on the first floor, as well as six rooms for the teacher, their family and student boarders from other parts of Vancouver Island

The land on which the schoolhouse sits is on the shore of the Gorge Waterway, and includes an ancient archaeological site. It is valued as the oldest surviving public building in British Columbia. Architecturally, its value lies in its utilitarian form, large massing, simple construction, and understated detailing, which provide insight into the functional nature of the Province's earliest public works.
