The Old Moser Schoolhouse (Wiseman)

The Moser Schoolhouse was built in 1917 to replace the old log structure that stood a quarter of a mile or so away. It is built of a simulated cut stone likely made at the brick factory in Calico Rock (several surviving buildings using this material still exist including The Calico Rock Church of Christ), an unusual material to find in a schoolhouse in Izard County. The old building stands along the Wiseman Road between Wiseman and Horseshoe Bend. The barn that once served the students and teacher still stands, as well!
