Site Today: Northwest corner of Oak and 3rd Streets

The private home on the site today was one of the Twin Schools. The building was moved to Arcadia from Burnham to serve the area's rapidly growing number of school-aged children. In 1910, this building was moved to the present location and converted to a two-story house.
