Long Description:
District No. 44 School served western Minnesota children in grades one through eight from 1891 until 1954. In its first year, it held eighteen students. Although no longer in use as a school, it is well-preserved, and is the only one-room schoolhouse in Traverse County still in its original location. The previous District No. 44 School, at another location, had closed by 1888.

This one-room schoolhouse is on U.S. Highway 75. It is west of Tintah, and about 13 miles north of Wheaton. There is a small area in which a car can pull off the highway if there is not snow.

This building is owned by Taylor Township, and formerly served as the town hall.

This school building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2011.
