Beautiful 1938 W.P.A.-constructed school building located on 4 acres in Lansing off Highway 194 in Ashe County. Constructed from the same quarry stone as the Blue Ridge Parkway, The town of Lansing is a 5-minute walk from the school and is undergoing a revitalization in the commercial district with new businesses, restaurants and organic farming operations.

The main school building which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places is 18,000 square feet with an interior cleared of walls down to the studs. The original windows and floors are still intact. New roof in 2007.The two-story structure sits on top of a hill overlooking the American Legion ball fields, which were formerly the school fields and connected via a pedestrian tunnel that runs under Hwy 194. There are plantings of several grape vineyard rows on a portion of the front lawn.

Two other buildings on the property: an 8,000 square foot Brick Classroom building circa 1960, (new roof 2017), and a 2000 square foot former cafeteria building now in use as a retail and wholesale successful cider-making operation.
