This two-room schoolhouse served the city for 101 years. Deactivated in 1961, it was sold to the Marshall Historical Society in 1968.

A lot of restoration work has been done, including reproducing the bell tower, which was based on a photo of the school before the turn of the century.

Inside the school, one room has been set up as a 19th-century classroom. The other room is a museum for and about children, including antique doll buggies, hobby horses, bicycles, dolls, toys and doll dishes. Tours are by appointment only.

In 1972, Capitol Hill School was listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is also listed on the Historical American Building Survey.
