Old Schoolhouse Museum
In 1927 the settlers in Twentynine Palms built their schoolhouse using donated money and materials. By 1940 the school served all of Morongo Basin and even with added on rooms was too crowded with its 90 pupils. The school operated until 1954 and then became a storage facility thereafter until it was saved by the Twentynine Palms Historical Society. The schoolhouse remains in good condition with plenty of artifacts from the early 1900s. To get there, take Twentynine Palms Hwy to National Park Drive and go south for about 1/3 of a mile. The museum is closed on Monday and Tuesday and open the rest of the week from 1 to 4.
