A minister attempted to convert the school into a private residence two years after the school’s closure but was unsuccessful in his attempts due to local zoning code. Caesar Creek is currently for sale.

  1. I went to Caesarcreek Elementary can’t remember the years. Mrs Bartley was my 1st grade teacher I also had Mrs Darding, Mrs. Beam and Mr.Northup for 5th grade I would have went to Spring valley but we moved away! I would have graduated in 1973. I was looking for class pictures of those years I was there. I remember having them taken. My name was Charlotte Engle. I loved linging in that area growing up it reminds me of Little House on the Prairie.

  2. I attended Caesarcreek from approximately 1952-1957. It was just a 2 room schoolhouse with outside toilets when I started. I still have a plate with a outline of the old building. They were sold as part of the fund raising activities for the new addition. I would love to have a picture of the old building. I have many memories of those days. It always surprises my co-workers to learn that I actually started out in a country schoolhouse. They liken it to Little House on the Prairie.

  3. I went to Caesar creek elementary school in 1970-71 – it had 100 students K thru 5. The principle was Mr. Rose who also taught 5 the grade. Miss La Salle taught music. We had 6 kids in band. There were 6 girls and 5 boys in the 5th grade. After it closed we were bussed to Spring Valley Elementary in 6 th grade.
