After the school closed, it was used as a seasonal residence until it was purchased and restored by the director of the Winona County Historical Society. Mark Peterson and his wife, Katie, stripped the old-fashioned gray with black speckles siding off (popular in the early 1900s) and painted the building the mellow yellow. The couple’s aim was to restore the interior while keeping the old schoolhouse feel. You can read more about the Peterson’s restoration process here in a Winona Post article.
