Ranier School

International Falls, Minnesota 56649, United States

Created By: Koochiching County Historical Society


The Ranier School was built in 1909 at a cost of $2,340.00. It was a two-story structure with three classrooms, a small library, and an auditorium. The original heating system consisted of two wood burning stoves, which was eventually replaced with a wood burning furnace. Originally, the toilet facilities were two outhouses but those were replaced with washrooms with running water and flushing toilets in the basement. Each classroom had two grades in them; after sixth grade the students had to transfer, most going to International Falls. The Ranier School served the community until it was closed in 1944.
