The independent town of Columbia City, WA, was annexed by Seattle in 1907. Its schools were annexed into the Seattle Public System in that year. This building operated as an independent school in 1908-1909. It was superceded by Floyd Naramore's Dunlap Elementary School #3 in 1924.

This 2-floor, wood frame building had a symmetrical facade, with a slightly projecting central bell tower that contained the front entrance. Sides of the tower were battered. Siding of differing widths and colors separated the basement story from the first on the exterior. A hipped roof covered most of the structure.

Stephen produced an addition for this lovely schoolhouse in 1908.

The school was closed in 1924 and probably demolished not long after.
