Built in 1873, Ourant School is a one room school house that was saved by alumni and renovated in the late 1990s. The school is still intact with original desks, central pot belly stove, slate black board encompassing the entire rear wall, and outhouses. Several events are held at the school annually, including a cake walk, and Fall Festival. But, the highlight of the year takes place in the spring when each of the second grade classes from the local elementary schools spend a day as students in a one room school house and get a taste of life in the 1900s.
The school is located on Ourant Road off Deersville Ridge in Nottingham Township between Cadiz and Deersville.
