The Grant School served local elementary children from 1914 until 1942 when it closed. The PCC was created soon after the school closed and is dedicated to the preservation of this historic Mason County landmark, to the maintenance of a vibrant community gathering place, and to financial and other education-related support of students and faculty in the local Pioneer school district. The Grant School serves the broader community as well as working with schools to provide field trips, educational classes, and other gatherings.

As shepherds of The Grant School, the Pickering Community Club has goals:

  • To preserve the 1914 Grant School historic flavor for the Pickering neighborhood's use and enjoyment.
  • To invite neighbors and friends to share the experience of The Grant School and to be a part of our potlucks and events.
  • To create a living classroom museum available to children for educational school field trips
  • Support other neighborhood charitable organizations who contribute to our area
