Description:

This teacherage is a single-story, rectangular (20′ x 30′) structure constructed of uncut native stone of auburn and buff colors. The roof is gabled. The single door entrance contains a portico and the building has sashed windows. Some of the roof and some of the windows are covered with tin. These alterations do not impeach the integrity of the building.
This teacherage is significant because construction of it provided jobs for unskilled and unemployed laborers in this rural and very remote area, while it infused wages of some 24,000 man-hours of labor into the local economy. This project also helped to create a new environment conducive to learning for children theretofore deprived educationally by attracting a teacher to the area. The teacherage is unique within the community because of its quality of workmanship and the portico entrance. It is also notable in terms of type, style, and materials used.[1]
