In 1894 on CO RD 10 west of CO RD 116 1/4 mile east of CO RD 19, a school house was built in Corcoran and Burschville. District 107 served the farming community until May 1967, when the school closed and the furnishings were sold at an auction. Later the North Hennepin Pioneer Society purchased the one-acre piece of land where the school stood from the Weinand family for $1,000. After a couple of years of searching, buying ,and receiving donations, it again resembles the one-room school house of the past.

Open house fundraiser functions during the summer help fund the expenses of insurance, painting, utilities, maintenance and lawn mowing. The North Hennepin Pioneer Society is continuously seeking historical documents, photographs,or items for donation.
