Parkesburg School is a historic school building located at Parkesburg, Chester County, Pennsylvania. It was built in three sections; the oldest dating to 1899-1900, with additions made in 1916 and 1958-1959. The oldest section is a two-story, rectangular brick building in the Italian Renaissance Revival style. It is nine bays by four bays and has a dual pitched hipped roof. The 1916 addition is two stories and in the Colonial Revival style. The 1958–1959 addition is a one-story, rectangular brick structure attached to the main building by a narrow ell-shaped connector wing.[2] It has been converted into a retirement home.
