The building has been restored in most essentials by the hard work of Espanola’s Rev. Frank Giddens, but still needs substantial work inside to make it a complete place of learning. Space is cramped, and there are no summer programs planned or given for the children there. Their peers elsewhere enjoy theme parks, field trips and other opportunities, transported by school district buses that never reach the small town. The Old Schoolhouse relies in part on the generosity of donors and sponsors who are able to break down economic barriers to help the children of the small, rural town.
