The Reche Schoolhouse was maintained by the Reche Club from 1934 until January 2016 when the Fallbrook Historical Society assumed the responsibility for its preservation, and for educating the public about its rich history. On September 17, 2016, after spending $35,000 in grant funded renovation, Fallbrook’s historic 1896 Reche Schoolhouse celebrated its grand re-opening. The Fallbrook Historical Society helped bring community members together to celebrate the renewal and commemoration of this historic, one-room schoolhouse.
The Reche Schoolhouse is one of the oldest buildings in Fallbrook and the first school ever built in the community. From the wooden floors, to the chalkboards on the wall, visitors get a taste of how Reche Schoolhouse got started.
The school is a major part of Fallbrook’s history.
