The Nelson Schoolhouse is a historic school building at 7 Nelson Common Road in Nelson, New Hampshire, United States. It was built in 1838, funded by the citizens of the town's #1 school district in part through district levies and in part through subscriptions. The ground floor was used for classes, and the second floor was a large space usable for public functions. The building is a 2-1/2 story structure, built of red brick laid in stretcher bond. It has a pair of doorways in the main facade, each topped by a four-light transom window, with a single long granite lintel stone above both entrances. There are two sash windows on the second level, offset from the doorways toward the sides of the building, and there is a centered pointed-arch window near the point of the gable. The building is topped by a small wooden tower with an open belfry and a shallow-pitch pyramidal roof.
