A FEAST FOR THE EYES, AS WELL AS THE TASTEBUDS
Listed on the National Register of historical places, The Old Schoolhouse Inn & Restaurant is a feast for the eyes as well as the tastebuds.
Built in 1903 at a cost of $1000.00, The Old Schoolhuse was originally a Union Free School.
The school district voted to establish an academic department and classes started in the fall of 1906. In order to be admitted under the Regents of the University at least five academic students were required, a goal which was reached in June 1907. The full rank of a high school was achieved in 1910.
An authentic schoolhouse, high school was taught upstairs where the banquet facilities are now; first and second grades were taught where the bar now resides and fifth and sixth grades were held where the main dining room . Classes were held here until 1939 when everything moved to the central school.
In 1987 Tom and Julie Markert bought the Old Schoolhouse and started a MAJOR restoration. The project included new oak floors, refinishing the windows, doors and staircase and remodeling the whole upstairs into a banquet room. The entire building features the original tin ceilings, and wainscotting throughout. The wainscotting has been restored to it's original wood finish, even though it had several coats of paint from years gone by. Now the restaurant's victorian windows, polished floors, ornate furniture and mounted wildlife make your dining experience most memorable.
The Old Schoolhouse is the perfect setting for private parties, retirement dinners, luncheons, business meetings and of course, wedding receptions (a specialty of the Old Schoolhouse).
The Old schoolhouse offers a complete dinner menu, including appetizers, a shrimp salad bar, beef, chicken and seafood entrees, as well as an assortment of delicious homemade desserts. We proudly serve our famous all natural farm raised Texas Longhorn burgers daily and offer various steaks on special. You may also purchase our famous Texas Longhorn burger in 1 or 2 pound packages.
