Lucerne Area Revitalization Association

The goal is to make things better for the long term. Getting there requires attention to social, environmental and economic outcomes.

Kelsey Creek Schoolhouse

In 2021, the Kelseyville Unified School District granted LARA the Kelsey Creek Schoolhouse as the result of an RFP process that began before the pandemic. Additionally, we have entered a 50-year lease for the property where the schoolhouse sits in Finley.


Now, we’re preparing to move forward with the next phase of the project: Restoration.


Thanks to the help of you and the Lake County community, combined with a $5,000 Americana Corner grant, this year we completed the critical lead remediation project to make the schoolhouse building safe for visitors and volunteers.

That project also cleared the way for the next phase of work planned for 2024 — including replacement and repair of damaged siding and flooring, window repairs, foundation work and a final paint job, inside and out.

To support the Kelsey Creek Schoolhouse renovation project, please use the adjacent donation form for a dedicated donation.

LARA is a 501c(3) incorporated in the state of California.
LARA's mission is to engage in area projects designed to foster job creation and improve quality of life and health, and to pursue activities related to community development in the absence of the redevelopment agency.
