This is the old Alder School — or at least the bottom floor. It is presently the Alder Community Club.

Pat Van Eaton says that the school was moved to its present location when the Alder Dam was built. The Alder School District consolidated with the Eatonville School District around 1948 and it was then that the Alder Community Club took it over and removed the top story.

The second picture show the school in all it’s glory in 1909, when it was a full two stories.
