This historic school building was voted into being in August of 1915 and built. It was modified in 1921 to expand with a second story and again in 1936 to remove that addition. It now has the honor of being on both the State and Federal Heritage Registers.
We received the 2915 historic schoool building in 2005 from the school district but for financial reasons we returned it to the school for continued renovation. The building is now renovated at the District offices of the Rainier School District #307 in Rainier. One room in the building is dedicated to this history. Watch this web sight for updates as we rebuild the site.
The Rainier Historical Society formed in 1997 with the goal of saving the historic school built in 1915. We wanted to save the building and preserve the history of the Rainier Schools, the city of Rainier and the surrounding area.
