The Sunshine Schoolhouse was built in 1900. This historic building replaced the first school that tragically burned in 1876, and was torn down. The school served the mining community until 1943, when mining ceased due to war efforts, and remained vacant until the Wittemyer family donated it to the Historical Society in 1969.
