The school was built in 1889 on the Bridenbaugh farm and closed in 1927. Restoration began in 1995 and was completed in 1997. In 2000 Dale Bridenbaugh, who led the restoration project, received the Ohio Historic Preservation Merit Award. The school house was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2005. Since it opened to the public in 1997 several thousand people have visited the school.
