Schooling is an important aspect of any community. In Oak Glen, the first class was taught by Miss Foy in pioneer Enoch Parrish’s living room. For the next several years, she taught school in his cobbler shop.
   A wood schoolhouse on skids was built in 1889 and used for 38 years. It was moved by a team of horses from one side of the glen to the other.  Its most permanent home was on the Wilshire Ranch next to the creek across the road from where the stone schoolhouse is located. There was also a playground for the children and a corral nearby for the horses that were used as transportation to school.
In 1927, the community decided to build a two story permanent structure. It had standard “stick” framing with an exterior of stones brought by horse and sled from Mill Creek. It replaced the wood schoolhouse and provided students with “modern” central heating consisting of a coal burning heater downstairs and “modern” indoor plumbing. The school served the families in this apple growing community for 37 years. Because the building failed to meet the newest earthquake standards of 1965, the school was closed. It currently houses a collection of vintage desks, books and teaching materials.
San Bernardino County Special Districts operates and maintains the building and the park grounds. An independent support group, the Oak Glen School House Museum and Park Association, works closely with Special Districts and sponsors several fund raising activities. Your membership in the association is encouraged and appreciated.
Be sure to attend the Museum’s annual Open House and Mountain Music Day and Oak Glen’s annual Apple Blossom Festival and Apple Butter Festival. Remember to enter your favorite pictures of Oak Glen in the Museum’s Last Fall Photo Contest.
