Please contact us for a quote on the price of this space, as there are many variables which overwhelm this website.  If you want to do an overnight in the gym, like a "lock in" - this is available, but you must rent the entire school for that night.  More details about renting for events are at the end of this description.

This classic schoolhouse was built in 1931. We have a full gymnasium with sports equipment, workout area, free weights, and ping pong.  There is a fire pit, big lawn, and fort area for the kids to play on.

Our prices vary depending on the length of the event, what facilities you wish to use and how many participants will be there.  If you are concurrently renting parts of the school to sleep in, that will discount your rental rates by the number of people who are staying at the school.  Please call us at (330) 521-3007 or email us at for a quote.

Minimum fees are $75 for 3 hours for the gym, and $200 for 4 hours for an event including the school cafeteria kitchen and gym.  Keep in mind that if all your guests stay in the school bedrooms, the gym is included free!  

Mark grew up in this area, and when we found this vintage school for sale, we had to buy it. It lured us with its solidly built romantic charms. Now we hope to share it with other people who will appreciate its well built and warm nature.

Massillon, Ohio

Our school was built in 1934, and we aim to keep its vintage feel by filling it with antique furniture and accessories. A lot of the interior decorations came with the school! Be kind to the old building. She has cracks and a patina due to her age. Feel free to play games and ping pong in the gym! Spend some time running around the fort and outside area!
