Accompanying note: "The old wooden schoolhouse, under three flags stands on quaint old St. George Street, just within the old City Gates. As evidence a Spanish map of 1788 shows this red cedar house in fair condition. It is being used in recent exhibitions as contrast to the most modern types of school administration."
The clapboard house of red cedar planks with a dormer window, pitched shingle roof and coquina rock chimney first appears on tax records in 1716 and was later used as a school house before the Civil War.
