Old Schoolhouse Museum

The Old Schoolhouse Museum was the first school house built in Chino in 1888. It was originally located on the corner of 5th and D Streets. In 1894 it was closed. Then, in 1898, the building was relocated behind the Brick School, known today as the Community Building. In 1914, the building was relocated once again to its present location.

In 1925, the Eastside Thimble Club purchased the building from the School District and used it as a social hall and for local meetings. In 1976, the Thimble Club presented the building to the Chino Valley Historical Society, who in 1982, opened the building as the Old Schoolhouse Museum.

To further preserve Chino's history, in 2013, the Chino Valley Historical Society presented the building to the City of Chino.  After an extensive cataloging of archives, and interior refurbishing the city re-opened the Old Schoolhouse Museum on May 14, 2016.  The museum was re-opened and dedicated in honor of  the late Ms.Phyllis Outhier. Her dedication to the Chino community and service to the Chino Valley Historical Society is cemented into our history.
