Student Feedback:

“I am thanking you for all the information you gave us about the 1881 school house. It was a wonderful day.”

“I had an outstanding time at the school house! Not only was I entertained, I also learned a lot about the past. I liked the slates and wish we used them now-a-days. The same thing goes for the spelling bee! My experience was really enjoyable and I hope we can come back another year!”
