Hoff School is located northeast of Kirwin in rural Phillips County. The one-room, wood-frame schoolhouse was built by local carpenter Fred Agard in 1899 when the county's population peaked at just over 14,000 residents. The building served area students until consolidation closed it in 1946. Like many one-room schools, it features a front-entry addition and a front-facing gable roof with three double-hung windows on each of the north and south sides. The building was nominated as part of the "Historic Public Schools of Kansas" multiple property listing for its association with local education and its architecture.
