The District No. 7 School of East Glen Wild once stood on this site. The school was established as early as 1875 and served as the center of education for the community for several decades.  As roads and modes of transportation improved, schools began to be consolidated, which resulted in the closing of many one room schoolhouses. Eventually District No. 7 School of East Glen Wild closed and the land was subsequently sold in 1965.
