Clearfield School, built in 1900, is located northeast of Baldwin City in Palmyra Township on a half-acre site that includes three contributing buildings (the school and two outhouses) and one non-contributing building (a shed). This school building was at least the second schoolhouse to serve district 58 students, and was originally built in a location one mile east, but it was moved to its current location in 1908. The school closed in 1946, but it continued to serve as a meeting house for the Clearfield Grange until the 1990s. At the time of nomination, the Clearfield Historical Society maintains the building. This vernacular one-room schoolhouse exhibits Queen Anne and Stick stylistic references including a triangular panel in the front gable, ornamental windows with a band of several square panes encircling a larger clear pane, a shed roof supported by ornamental brackets over each entrance, and fishscale shingle siding in the front gable. It was nominated as part of the "Historic Public Schools of Kansas" multiple property nomination for its local significance in the areas of education and architecture.
