The Thorp Grade School, built in 1936, is one of the oldest and best preserved “rural brick schoolhouses” in Kittitas County. Designed by noted architect John Maloney in a U-shape, the Colonial Revival style building was constructed for $41,000 and housed grades 1st through 8th grade. Today it still operates as a grade school.
