The property known as Caldwell Station School is located at 17616 Caldwell Station School Rd, Huntersville, N.C. The Caldwell Station School is a well preserved example of early 20th century rural school architecture in Mecklenburg County.
The Caldwell Station School demonstrates the rapid evolution of rural schools in Mecklenburg County in the first half of the 20th Century from widely scattered small schoolhouses into larger "union" schools located in the county's towns. The Caldwell Station School is the most substantial surviving building associated with the place known as "Caldwell Station," a small rural commercial and transportation center, with origins that can be traced to the 1850s. The Caldwell Station School is important for understanding the history of Mecklenburg County because it vividly demonstrates the nature of rural schools in the county during the first half of the 20th Century.
Today it operates as The Children’s Schoolhouse, a pre-school serving area families.
