The Soledad school in Acton was built out of home-made bricks in 1890 on the
same spot where an earlier wooden one-room schoolhouse had stood. The new school
reputedly took several years to erect, at a cost of $4,000. As many as 45 pupils took lessons from teacher
Mattie Adams when the school opened.
In the 1930s an even larger school was needed, and this one was converted to a farm house when
the new school was erected at another site.
