The Old Oak Glen Schoolhouse
The first Yucaipa school was actually established in Oak Glen. In the 1880's, a wood structure was built. The structure was built on skids so that it could be moved to various locations in the glen.
According to the late R. A. Webster, the school was moved in 1886 to Elisabeth Ranch. About 1894-95 it was moved to the Birch Ranch. In 1900, it was moved for the final time to the Wilshire Ranch. In 1927, school board members decided to build a new, permanent school. The wood school remained on the Wilshire property for several years.
Through the efforts of the Oak Glen School House Museum and Park Association, The San Bernardino County Special Districts and with the generous support of loyal alumni and visitors to Oak Glen, plans have been made to build a replica of the old wood schoolhouse. Construction will begin in 2012 and the replica will be located near the historic stone schoolhouse on the park grounds.
