    I came across this usage in notes about a school in Landeau, SD (the town no longer exists): “A one room school building was in place prior to 1932. The one room addition used as a teacherage was added sometime after 1938. Until that time, a corner of the school room was partitioned off for the teacher’s living quarters.”

    Teacherage appears in Half-Broke Horses, about life on the frontier.

    A character in one of Zenna Henderson’s “The People” books, set in the semidesert West, lives in a teacherage. She is the teacher for a one-room schoolhouse serving a large, thinly populated area far from even a small town.
