Originally the "Hinchinbrooke District Number 3" schoolhouse, this building was constructed in 1875 as a one-room country schoolhouse which helped to educate children along the Gore Road for dozens of years. The current owners tastefully transformed it into the charming two-storey home as it is today.
In the late 1940s the property was sold by the School Board and the schoolhouse was raised and turned, excavated underneath to pour a concrete basement for the house. The front and back porches were also added at around that time. That family lived in the house until around 2003.

The house was purchased in 2004 by the current owners and a complete overhaul was done on the inside and outside of the house and property. The interior was gutted from the floor to the roof with the original schoolhouse walls left on the main floor for country character. All plumbing was redone including a new hot water tank (replaced in 2018), pressure tank, central vacuum system, and water softener. Electrical was completely redone with a 200-amp panel. The main floor ceiling was lowered and a second floor was added with 3 bedrooms and a full bath room with pine plank floors. The exterior of the house was stripped to the original skeleton of the schoolhouse and was insulated with urethane spray-foam on the complete outside of the house in order to maintain the interior schoolhouse walls. A steel roof and all new PVC energy-efficient windows were also added. Pine board and batten siding was installed to complement the country style exterior.
