The Federal School is a historic one-room schoolhouse located on Darby Road in Haverford near the Allgates Estate. It was established in 1797, and was called the Federal School because of the community’s pride of being part of the Federal United States, but not much else is known about it until 1849, when the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania purchased the building and officially renamed it the Haverford Seminary Number 1. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.
