Range School was in operation prior to Oct. 29, 1843. It began as a common school with classes held in a log sheep barn donated by Jonathan Range. In 1901, a one-room frame building was constructed near the original site. A brick building was constructed near the 1901 site in 1914. The current building was completed in 1963. The property for the last two buildings was purchased from George and Hattie Range Snodgrass. Range School is still serving the community.
