The building that houses Little Village Country Day School was once
called Walnut Grove. It began as a Methodist Episcopal Church and was established in 1847. The original building was only one room, which is
now the kindergarten. The two front classrooms, along with the office,
foyer, and bell tower, were not added until 1894. The church closed in
1967, and remained vacant until it was sold in the 1980s.
