A Little History...

The first Soulsbyville School was a private one, and begun in 1865.

The public school was established in 1869. Since that time, Soulsbyville School has been located at various sites in our area.

The last "Little Red Schoolhouse" was located just down the road from our present location and now houses our Community Day School.

The present school site was begun in 1962 with the new Falcon Gym and classrooms being built in 2007.

Currently Sousbyville Elementary School serves students K through 8th grade and the school is located in Tuolumne County California, north west of Yosemite National Park and east of Sonora.

Soulsbyville is named after Ben Soulsby, who resided in the area during the California Gold Rush. 

Mr. Soulsby ran a lumber mill near the intersection of Community Drive and Soulsbyville Road. His contribution to society is forever embossed in the following elementary school song:

"Drop on by, we're up the hill.
We're the kids from Soulsbyville.
See the town with the old saw mill,
We're the kids from Soulsbyville.           
Living here is mighty fine,
Named for Ben Soulsby's old gold mine, Come see us, if you will.
