Picayune School

The Picayune School was built especially for the Chukchansi Indians in 1913. Many of the ranch children also attend and the school was closed during the war years. It did not look like this in the beginning. Many buildings in this part of Eastern Madera County were built of wood and have burned down, only to be rebuilt with wood from other buildings. The school was moved from it's original location in Quartz Mountain Area for display at the Museum.
With a Grant from the Chukchansi Indian Casino, the school house has been refurbished and is available for use as a meeting room.
