The old schoolhouse was built in 1876 in the center of Kurzell. The building, built in the neo-renaissance style as part of historicism during the time of Kaiser Wilhelm I, is a listed building.
In 2017, seven extraordinary rental apartments were built in the old school building. A requirement of the monument office to maintain the outer facade of the front and the classrooms. was observed.
Robert Althauser (Steinhauser Company in Kirchzarten) acquired the property and converted it with the help of local companies. Only two companies outside the community were commissioned.
Plans to convert the adjacent bull barn and the milk house are already in place.
The village square in front of the old schoolhouse was inaugurated on September 18, 2004. The unveiling of the Mewa sculpture “Heuschrecke” next to the fountain (gift from the Gebauer-Beisse entrepreneurial family, owners of the Mewa company) was framed by a brass group from the music association and a choir from both kindergartens and elementary school.
