Gate City Schoolhouse


This historic one-room schoolhouse was built in 1910. The Gate Community Club has maintained and supported the building since 1944, preserving the original slate blackboards, straight-grain fir flooring which was milled at the Bordeaux Lumber Mill and the original school bell still rings through the area. A maternal nesting bat colony lives in the belfry and can be seen at dusk as hundreds of bats fly out to forage.
