Significance: The Leaday school is a one-story woodframe structure which served as the auditorium and probably additional classroom space for a small complex of buildings begun about 1906 as a response to the sudden population growth in the vicinity of the new town of Leaday. The auditorium structure, built about 1917, remains as one of a handful of structures left standing in the deserted little town, once the center of a sizeable group of tenant farms established on the adjacent Day-Padgitt and Day-Miller Ranches. As well as serving its educational purpose, the structure also functioned as the common community meeting hall for a period of almost thirty years.
