The home was run by JW and Margaret Barnhurst who were Seventh Day Adventists. It opened in 1920 and closed in 1937. My ex-husband's grandfather bought the property in 1939. The dorm is gone, the only remnants of it are the stairs that face the creek. The sign over the front gate is now attached to the barn. Information on the school and home can be found in the Adventist, Heritage, Volume 14, Number 2. Here is the link to the publication:

Click on the link and go to the Browse Collection tab. Type in Barnhurst. The school is the last item on the list. The cover photo is a photo of the main gate. The information on the school begins on page 14.
