The 1900 Smith Hollow Country School was moved from its home in Smith Hollow to its current location on Front Street where it serves as a museum. During it's time the Smith Hollow School, which served grades one through eight, was considered one of the best-built and best-equipped schools in the county. According to the Blue Mountain Heritage Society website, students ranged in age from 6 to 20 years old. Teacher pay, at $90 to $114 a month, was among the highest in the county.
