Geocache Description:

Log only, BYOP!!

The Bennett School is just southeast of Jordan Creek Elementary School on Fuller Road in West Des Moines. Here is what the WDM Historical Society has to say about it:

"Built in 1926 or '27 the Bennett School was one of the last one room schools to be built in West Des Moines and was in use until at least 1941. It was originally located on an acre of ground donated by the Bennett family at the southwest corner of what is now known as Fuller Road and 50th Street. The school was eventually sold, remodeled slightly, and used as a private home for a number of years before being donated to the West Des Moines Historical Society by its final owners. Through the generosity of the community, a restoration project was begun in 1997 which returned the school to it's former appearance."
