I came across this on my way home and have not found any information on it. The old nameplate had fallen off and I didn't see it anywhere around. The building sits on private property and sits in the corner of a field (close to the road) that is fenced off with barb wire. Interested to find out more.

I have found that the 1896 map of Poweshiek County has this school marked. It sits in Lincoln Township, Section 7 in the northeast corner. The map only marks it as "school".

I have now found the school marked on an 1875 Andreas Atlas.
