Take self-guided schoolhouse tour to view historic Woodland school

Woodland School

These historic treasures can be studied on a downloadable brochure entitled “Historic School House Field Trip” that can be found at www.kamiahchamber.com.

One schoolhouse of interest is the Woodland School. Leave Kamiah East on U.S. Highway 12, take a left on Woodland Road immediately after crossing the Clearwater River. Follow Woodland Road up the grade 11 miles to the Woodland Schoolhouse on your right.

The community of Woodland became a thriving settlement in 1895. During its heyday, the three-room schoolhouse offered education through the first two years of high school, and had about 75 students enrolled.

In 1957, Woodland high school students began traveling to Kamiah for their education. In 1958, seventh and eighth grade followed suit, and in 1967 the school closed for good.
