Salvador Elementary School

Historic Schoolhouse Renovation

Napa, CA

Originally built in 1923 to serve as the schoolhouse for the small rural community of Salvador, the structure was boarded up in 1967 and has been used only for storage since. But with the passing of a local bond, the District could finally rehabilitate the neglected building into a multi-use, library, and classroom building for the existing Salvador Elementary School campus.

While fully modernizing the building with high ceilings, abundant daylight, and new technology, the original Mission Revival architecture and historic charm were preserved. Rehabilitated and restored, the old Salvador schoolhouse once again functions as the visual anchor of the campus
