For those that don't know the history. The Diamond Rock Schoolhouse is an historic octagonal one-room school. A well-known landmark in The Chester Valley, it is located at the foot of Diamond Rock Hill in Tredyffrin Township, just a stone's throw from Valley Forge National Historic Park, the village of Paoli, and the Great Valley Corporate Center.
The Diamond Rock Schoolhouse was used as a school between 1818 and 1864. As the population of the area grew during the mid-1800s, the school eventually became too small, and it closed in 1864 when students were reallocated to other nearby schools. After 1864, the old schoolhouse fell into disrepair but was eventually restored in 1909 by the Diamond Rock School Old Pupils Association, a group of former students who saw great value in preserving their former school for future generations.
Their stewardship continues today under a new name, The Diamond Rock Schoolhouse Preservation Association.
