Oso Elementary School

Oso Elementary School

The small community of Oso on the north fork of the Stillaguamish River between Arlington and Darrington, has long taken justifiable pride in its early schools, the first of which was a rustic log cabin. The present Oso School is the third such building, built in 1915, a substantial wood-frame representative of the schoolhouses found throughout rural school districts early in the century. Designed to accomodate four teachers and a hundred students, the building is faced with clapboard siding. The bell tower which rises from the ridge of the hipped roof contains the original schoolbell. Through the efforts of volunteers the school has been cared for and preserved since being removed from service in the 1970s.
