Gill School-District 33 (Wallace, Logan County) was built in 1888 by early settlers of the area. The school was constructed of Niobrara limestone, believed to be locally quarried. It is possible that the limestone was re-purposed from the then recently abandoned Fort Wallace, located seven miles to the west. Constructed of native limestone and bearing no specific stylistic references, the school is classified as a vernacular one-room schoolhouse. The interior of the school also reflects the style and layout of traditional one-room country schools. Except for the entry bay, the school is one room designed to serve all children of families in the area.
