The Dixie Schoolhouse is both historically and architecturally significant in relationship to early California.  Not only does it provide a valuable link to the well-known James Miller family, but it is Marin County’s last remaining mid-Victorian one-room schoolhouse with is substantially unaltered, and intended for viable, contemporary public use as an educational museum, meeting hall, and historical monument for visiting classes of school-children.  The other schoolhouses of this era have either been converted to private residences or demolished.
