In 1952, the town of Islesboro was given a gift of this building by Mrs. Lillian S. Whitmarsh to be used as an island school (the building was originally a private residence). Previously, elementary schools dotted the island, and the the current high school (now the Islesboro Historical Society) was in bad shape. All grades kindergarten through twelfth were to be housed in this new location. The school opened in 1954.
