Joe Mullins Donates Funds to Complete Rehab Project On Historic Espanola Schoolhouse
With the support of Joe Mullins and The Mullins Companies, the historic one-room Espanola Schoolhouse located at 98 Knox Jones Avenue in Bunnell received a much needed facelift.
The only one-room schoolhouse still standing in Flagler County is the Espanola Schoolhouse. It is also serves as the first landmark in Flagler County to be associated to Black history and has been nationally recognized as it was added to the National Register of Historic Places on July 22, 2020.
The repairs and maintenance included stucco, pressure washing, fresh paint on the building and trim, replacement of the aluminum drip edge, soffit and fascia, and a partial rebuild of the front porch roof. They also installed a new custom historic sign that reads, "Historic Espanola Schoolhouse, St. Paul Youth Center, The Only Minority Schoolhouse Still Standing in Flagler County."
The cosmetic repairs improved the overall character of the building while the structural repairs increased the building's longevity and stability.
