Herbert Quick School

-A A +A
c. 1860–1865. City Park, northeast corner of G Ave. and 14th St.

A perfect picture of the typical one-room rural schoolhouse, this clapboard-sheathed building with a gable roof was moved from Colfax Township to its present location in 1933. The Iowa author Herbert Quick (author of Vandemark's Folly and The Invisible Woman) received his early education within this schoolhouse.
