Learn more about the history and conservation of Jack’s Mill School. A miniature bungalow designed, built and furnished entirely by school children makes this one of the quirkiest historic sites on the West Coast.


This report was commissioned by the Department of Conservation's West Coast Conservancy.

The Department required a conservation report for the two main buildings at Jack’s Mill School (the school building itself and the bungalow), to include a background history and description of the place, an assessment of its significance and condition, with a schedule of repair work and an annual maintenance plan.
