Neff's one-room schoolhouse on the outskirts of Kutztown. It was built in the 1880s and used up until 1955 when the Kutztown School District consolidated their fifteen one-room schoolhouses into a larger school that could house all students. It remained dormant until Bill and Doll Fox purchased the property in 1972 and spent several years renovating it as a second home. Since then, they have also purchased another one-room schoolhouse, the Eagle Point school, on the other side of Kutztown. The Fox's have decorated the interior of the Neff School with antiques and symbols commemorating life in Kutztown. Mr. Fox is known for his intricate topiary gardens he curates outside both schoolhouses.
