Brown’s Mill School

Brown’s Mill School was built in 1836, two years after the Pennsylvania Legislature passed the Free School Act. In 1921 the school closed and stood empty, deteriorating until 1934 when a Memorial Association was formed to restore the building. The Brown’s Mill School was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973. The school is located at the intersection of Angle Road and Kauffman Road in Kauffman Station, midway between Marion and Greencastle.
