The Olive Branch School Preservation Society


OBmap Founded in 2007 by a group of concerned school and community members, the Olive Branch School Preservation Society (OBSPS) is dedicated to the preservation of the old Olive Branch School and its rich history. Located at 9710 W. National Road (US Route 40) near New Carlisle, Ohio, Olive Branch School stands as a good representation of a rural turn-of-the-century high school. Built in 1908 and reconstructed in 1913, following a devastating fire, this Craftsman style structure was progressive for its time. Designed by noted Dayton, Ohio architect, Charles Insco Williams, the building was used as a school house until the 1970s and still maintains its 1914 appearance. It is currently being used as a district warehouse and storage center and is the only remaining "historic" building on the Tecumseh campus.

The mission of the Olive Branch School Preservation Society is to promote and fund the preservation of Olive Branch School and local history, and to further the legacy of cooperation between the schools and community through public engagement.

By making a donation and contributing to the OBSPS, you have the opportunity to play an important role in the restoration of our beloved “little round school.” With the help of your generous donations, the Olive Branch School Preservation Society continues to work diligently to return the building to its former glory. Please take this opportunity to invest in Olive Branch’s future through preserving its past.

Your tax-deductible donations and membership dues help the OBSPS to continue as a viable organization committed to the restoration of Olive Branch School. Act now to ensure the success of this important project.
