After the first Oysterville schoolhouse burned down, this replacement building was constructed in 1907. It is a one-story, shingle-sided building with a gable roof and a parallel gable extension extending from its west side. The schoolhouse, which is near the Oysterville Church in the southern section of the Oysterville Historic District, features an attached hipped-roof porch, enclosed at the sides with a small belltower on the ridge of the roof directly above the porch. The school served the community until 1957, and presently serves as the meeting place for the Oysterville Community Club.
