HistoryIt was built in 1889 of brick with two outhouses (still standing). Fire destroyed the structure three times - and it was rebuilt each time. Pupils attended from miles around until the 1950s when consolidation of the county schools took place. Since the 1980s, the building has been a private home. It was named for the Buffalo Creek community.
