Located in Clay Banks in southern Door County, Vignes was a Norwegian community for which the schoolhouse was named. Local residents built the school during the 1890s, and it became a cornerstone of the community because it hosted concerts, plays, holiday programs, graduation ceremonies and town hall meetings until the early 1990s.
