Recalling Creswell’s ‘Old Schoolhouse’

The building in Creswell on the corner of South 2nd and D Streets, across from the Creswell Bakery, is known as the old library or the old schoolhouse.  

Further back in time, it was known as The Civic Club when the Creswell Civic Improvement Club owned it.  

Before that it was the Baptist Church, when the Oregon Baptist Society owned it. Even further back in time, it was P. Noland’s hall. Before that it was just “the school” when it was Creswell’s first and only school . . .
