The decorative touches that set the Silver Creek schoolhouse apart from its plainer counterparts include buttresses along the side walls, a charming circular window above the main doors, and the buff-brick voussoirs that form a rounded arch above both the large side windows and the two smaller multipaned windows that flank the entrances. Buff bricks were also used to create a pattern of decorative quoins at each corner of the building.
