HistoryA log school built in the 1870s by Selim Vezina and Antoine Roy, which has been called Evergreen's first school. Classes ceased there in 1937 when the district consolidated with Evergreen. Caroline Vezina, in about 1948, had the school moved log by log to her home on Evergreen Hill, and the Evergreen Women's Club had it moved to its present site between the Evergreen High School and Wilmot Elementary School.
