This historic schoolhouse was built in 1913 and replaced Boynton Beach's one-room schoolhouse. The school was considered state-of-the-art and featured indoor plumbing as well as six rooms. As Boynton Beach continued to grow, this school became overcrowded. The city opened a high school in 1926 and a second school for younger children was completed in 1927. The school closed in 1940 and may have been demolished if not for the efforts of preservationists who had the building listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Today, the school features a small children's museum that opened in 2001.
