The brick schoolhouse was known as District Number 7 when it was active. Research has not been able to arrive at a conclusive date of construction, however based upon its architecture, it is definitely from the 19th century.
The Board of Education for Geneva Township purchased a 3/4 acre for a schoolhouse lot from the estate of Joseph Battell on April 25, 1877. $25 was authorized on June 30, 1877, for the purpose of grading the school ground. In November 1877, $3 was to be paid for plowing the school ground.
There is anecdotal evidence that the building was in use as a schoolhouse as late as the 1918 school year.
The land became a park in 1910.
