This historic place was registered under the Historic Places Act 1980. The following text is from the original Proposal for Classification report considered by the NZHPT Board at the time of registration.
Social/Historical Significance: It represents a type of vernacular school house constructed in New Zealand in the 1890s, and became a standard for Mitchell and Watt in their design of school house residences for the Auckland Education Board. It has a strong association with the historic period of Kuaotunu's settlement and growth as a goldmining town. It is the only building remaining to commemorate the locality's use as a centre for this community.
