- In the spring and summer of 2015, the Trafalgar Township Historical Society took on the project of photographing the historic houses from the North Service Road north to Burnhamthorpe Road, from Ninth Line west to Tremaine Road.
S.S. No. 16 schoolhouse sits on the west bank of the Sixteen Mile Creek, at 2477 Fourth Line, just below Dundas. As you can see, it is slowly deteriorating. Vandals have pulled bricks out, pulled off the back porch (the building was most recently a family home) and defaced it with graffiti.
The "Sixteen Hollow Schoolhouse" is recognized by the Town of Oakville on the Register of Properties of Cultural Heritage Value or Interest (Not Designated) as having "potential cultural heritage value for its historic rural one-room brick schoolhouse".
As of March 2019, heritage designation continues to be discussed. The property owners have stabelized the building condition and continue to maintain it properly.
