This school, established in 1896 as both a grammar and high school, was built as a 1-room building and was expanded to 3 rooms by 1900. With as many as 4 teachers and well over 100 students in its best years, Delmar School taught over 600 students in its 56 - year history. Though the high school (grades 8 - 10) closed in the mid - 1930s the grammar school (grades 1 - 7) continued to serve the Delmar community until it closed in 1952.
