The United States celebrated its Bicentennial on Sunday, July 4, 1976, the 200th anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. Celebrations were held in small towns and big cities throughout the year. According to the Iowa American Revolution Bicentennial Commission Report, the commemoration in Iowa was not centered on any one event or location, but consisted of a series of parades, festivals and celebrations put together by grassroots organizations such as the The Renwick Iowa Bicentennial Committee.

The Renwick, Iowa Independent School District was formed in 1892 and housed in a two story frame building until 1916 when it was moved to a two story brick building on the north side of town. In the mid-1950s, Renwick, Hardy and Vernon consolidated systems under the name Boone Valley. Due to declining enrollment, the district dissolved in 1988.
