Long Description:
"A time-worn and weathered building site beside the Fruitvale Road, a bit of the past that we are all trying to recapture now. It is the old Fruitvale School, built in the 1880's on land donated by Larkin Fowler.

It is now known as the Fruitvale Community Hall. We are reminded of Whittier's poem, "Still sits the schoolhouse by the road, An idle beggar sleeping," but there are no idle beggars sleeping among the members of the Fruitvale Community Hall Association." (visit link)
