Beaser School is a former school in Ashland, Wisconsin, United States. Built in 1895,[citation needed] it is a brick and brownstone building designed by architect Henry Wildhagen. It has a brownstone arch over a recessed entryway.[2] It was expanded in 1955.[3]

The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980, along with three other schools in Ashland also designed by Wildhagen: Ashland Middle School (1904), Ellis School (1900), and Wilmarth School (1895).[2][note 1]

In 1991, Beaser School became the headquarters of Cooperative Educational Service Agency #12.[3]


  1. ^ The thematic resources document notes the four schools were built in 1895, 1899, 1900, and 1904, according to school records, without distinguishing which (page 5). However, Beaser School was 1899-built (page 4). Ashland Middle School was the "finally produced" one (page 5), hence must be 1904-built. Ellis is "closest in age" to the middle school (page 4), so it must be the 1900 one. Wilmarth is noted to have been built in 1895 (page 3).
