Soledad School
Acton, California

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.
