Save This Old C. 1895 Utah Fixer Upper Abandoned School For SALE On 1.41 Acre $95K

Back in 1865, a group of 100 Mormon men came together and dedicated 18 days of hard work to construct Fort Deseret. This fort was built with the noble purpose of safeguarding the settlers in the nearby town of Deseret. Interestingly, the very spot where this school now stands saw its first schoolhouse in 1895, providing education to the children of those Mormon pioneers. It replaced an earlier school that once occupied the same ground.

Fast forward to 1914, a larger school was erected in the vicinity, and the school we’re highlighting today was put up for auction in 1919. It was snapped up by Louis Schoenberger, who transformed it into a welcoming home and boarding house for dedicated school teachers. Mr. Schoenberger made it his residence for many years until he passed away in 1972. Though time has passed, the building still bears the name “Schoenberger Place” and carries the echoes of its rich history.

This historic treasure is now in need of a caring historic preservationist to breathe new life into it. The Deseret School House is a truly unique property. Originally zoned for residential use, it was in the process of being considered for commercial zoning before the current owners took possession. Situated on a generous 1.4-acre lot, the potential here is boundless. If you’re interested, inquire about the possibility of seller financing, with a reasonable 20% down payment, a 5% interest rate, and a 3-4 year balloon payment option.
