Caspar Lumber Company’s little red schoolhouse on Route 20 between Fort Bragg and Willits

I received this e-mail from Monty L. Coursey, Sr.:

About a year ago, my friend and I visited northern California and drove from FortBragg southward to Sen Francisco through Calistoga. As we went out Highway 20 eastward we came upon the Little Red School House on the right side of the road. We stayed there only a few minutes but as we drove on to San Francisco, we talked at length about the little building and its setting close to the creek. Somehow it has always been special to us and we vowed that the next time we were in California we would go back there. But we were not sure exactly where it is located. Is there any way you could show us on a map how we could find it again?”

The above came with a spifflicating photo of the schoolhouse.

My reply:

“Great photo!!!!!!

The schoolhouse is on the Willits side of the Camp 20 recreation area  click to see map.
The good news is that the last time I passed work has been done to save the roof.
