Altaville Grammar School

This brick building, erected in 1858 with funds raised by a dance in the Billiard Saloon of the N.R. Prince Building (which still stands, 1955) is one of the oldest schools of California. It was in use until 1950, when it was replaced by the present Mark Twain Elementary School in Altaville.

Marker placed by the California State Park Commission in cooperation with Princess Parlor No. 84, Native Daughters of the Golden West, May 1, 1955.
