History of the Washington School
Built as one of the three original schools in Park City, Utah, the school was named for George Washington. Yes, of the cherry tree fame. The schoolhouse was built in 1889 of Limestone and contained three rooms, each 30 x 30 with 16 foot ceilings. Classes -- grades one through five -- began on November 18,1889, The Park Record newspaper reported the school to be one of the finest in the state.

Though close to going up in flames in Park City’s Great Fire of 1898, the hammered limestone façade of the school house survived. So did the name. After the stock market crash of 1929, enrollment declined and the school house was sold in 1936 to the Veterans of Foreign Wars. It was used for dances and social events until the 50s.

In 1984 the building was purchased and renovated into a bed and breakfast, The Washington School Inn, which served its visitors and community well until a new idea for the iconic landmark took hold. On completion of a total interior renovation (think gutted to the studs), this fabulously preserved 1889 limestone gem reopened in December 2011. In 1889, the editor of the local paper, The Park Record, wrote that the school building was “one of the finest in the territory.” He was delighted that, “elegant furniture is being installed.” Washington School House, he said, “will lack for nothing.” We are happy to report that well over a century later, this property is one of the finest in the territory. And elegant furniture is installed. Oh, and of course, it lacks for nothing.
