It has stood by itself in Ross's Hole for years...unused, battered by the wind, snow, rain and smoke. The Sula Schoolhouse, next door neighbor to the Sula Post Office, will be a little brighter this year.
The Sula Community Historical Society has been concerned about the building for years...everything from a better foundation to a fresh coat of paint.
The paint is happening, with the help of the Trapper Creek Job Corps, whose painting class was ready to go.
Other projects planned include the cedar shingles on the roof and the schoolhouse windows. The school was probably built around the turn of the century...1900. (Oh, the turn of that century!)
