Oleta Schoolhouse
American Flat Road
Built 1860

The schoolhouse and cemetery sit above Fiddletown on a hillside to the south.

After the original 1850s schoolhouse was destroyed, the present schoolhouse was built on the original site in 1860. It is typical of its type and period, based upon Classical Revival lines with clapboard siding, a small belfry and a covered front porch.

Excerpted from the NRHP nomination for the Fiddletown Historic District.

(Webmaster note: Although the NRHP nomination described the Oleta Schoolhouse as a Classical Revival building, I think that the architectural style is actually Greek Revival.)
