WALLA WALLA, WA - A one-room schoolhouse that served students in rural Columbia County in the early 20th century is set to open this weekend as a museum.  

The Blue Mountain Heritage Society has renovated the historic Smith Hollow School in Dayton, Washington. The museum will showcase the history of education in the county and serve as a place for the Blue Mountain Heritage Society and other community groups.  

The former school once served students in first through eighth grade before becoming a meeting center and eventually falling into disrepair. It was closed in 1933.  

In 2010, the building was moved into downtown Dayton, about 30 miles northeast of Walla Walla. 

The school will be dedicated on Friday.
