Hicklin School House

Lexington, Missouri

MLS# 2077912

Listing Price: $89,900


The Hicklin School, now known as the School House Suite, was built in 1914 by the Lafayette County Rural School Board. Renovations of the building, which included the addition of a full bathroom and kitchen, were completed in 2006 by the Hicklin family, who purchased the school in the 1950’s from the county.

The school is built on land purchased in 1876 for $50 from Young E. Hicklin (b.1842 d.1912). Young was the son of James Hicklin (b.1795 d.1875), one of Lexington’s first settlers; James bought the land on which the Hicklin School stands in 1825.

In 1995, John (Jack) R. Hicklin, Jr. began exterior renovations. In June 1996, many former students enjoyed a reunion at the school. In 2004, the Hicklin School was listed on the National Register of Historic Places and work on the interior began. Interior renovations were completed by Mr. Hicklin’s wife and daughter in 2006; Marcia Hicklin, your hostess, was awarded a DAR Historic Preservation Medal for her work on the school.
