School house
Rural School District #69 built in 1908
Restored in 1972.  Located between 8th Ave SW
and Hillside Ave. SW on 7th St. in Pine City, MN.
Originally known as the "Chengwatana" or "Wanous" school.
It was organized on July 11, 1905.
Constructed in section 14, R21.
The building was moved to Pine City and restored as a
schoolhouse on the National Register of
Historic Places, but because it was removed from
its original site it did not qualify.  Some of the original
District 69 furnishings are there today, but many
items were donated from other school districts.
