The school was built in 1909 as a Parochial Grade School 1 through 8 and will celebrate its centennial year in 2009. It has been turned into the Community Historical Center and Museum. The two-and-one-half story with full basement Renaissance Revival building was designed by William L. Steele, a student of famed Frank Lloyd Wright, and is listed on the Nebraska State Historical Society and the National Register of Historic Places in Washington DC. The museum is located on Lewis & Clark BiWay (Hwy 12) in Northeastern Nebraska, Boyd County.
