993 Orchid Rd.
In the early 1900’s, the Camano Land & Lumber Co. donated property in Camano City at the corner of Orchid Road and Chapman Road to independent School Dist. #18.  In 1905-1906, the one room Camano City Schoolhouse was constructed on the southern portion of this property.  Up through 1936, the Schoolhouse served to educate the community’s children.  In 1936, Camano students started attending school in Stanwood.  The Camano City Schoolhouse continued as an important part of community life and was used for many years as a community gathering place.
Maude Hayden, an Iowa farm girl, learned that the new Camano City Schoolhouse was looking for a teacher. With her new teacher certificate in hand, she boarded the transcontinental train to Seattle. She was awed by views of the Olympic Mountains and the vast expanses of water. Records show that $40 was her monthly annual salary, for which she taught all subjects to all grades.  
    (Next door.)  
    The Fire Hall
Fire and Rescue services on Camano formally began in 1945 and the Schoolhouse property ownership was transferred to the Camano City Fire District No. 1 for $200.  In 1946, a two-bay Fire Hall was built to provide a base for volunteer fire fighting coverage. (The Fire Hall building was enlarged to the present four-bay building in 1980.)
