Project 365, Day 84; The Murray Schoolhouse, 1856

The old Murray Schoolhouse built by Irish settlers in Dublin, California in 1856, is now located within the confines of the Dublin Heritage Center Museum.

The old schoolhouse began in its initial location with 50 students.

  

The school was moved shortly after being built in 1856 due to concerns about flooding; a team of oxen and horses “expedited” the move. The school was ultimately moved once more in the 1970’s due to city growth and freeway expansion,  to its current location.
