The tallest, most elaborate building left in Golconda, the wood-frame school reflects the late nineteenth-century prosperity of the town. The school, with two classrooms, was larger and more elaborate than most of its rural one-room counterparts. The building consists of three sections: the front-porch mass, containing the entry and supporting the tower; the central mass, containing the original classrooms; and the rear ell, built in 1929 to house the high school addition. The school's masses make a harmonious whole; the double gables of the classroom section frame the front-porch mass and the tower above. The flared-eave mansard roof provides a base for the bell tower.
