Description

The original Damman School was built on skids and was located on the Snowden property. On January 23,1893, the building was sold to Merritt Matthew Damman for the sum of $10.00 and he moved the building to it's current site on Damman Road west of Ellensburg. Two classrooms were later built which have remained in use as a school ever since. In 1916, a gymnasium and basement were added. The school formerly taught students in grades one through eight, but dropped two grades in the 1940s and added a kindergarten in the 1970s.
