  • Great piece of history. Playground is accessible and some shade to sit down. Schoolhouse has a historian who will answer all your questions.
  • My kids loved to visit the school. It's fun to know the past of the country.
  • Great reproduction of an 1849 school house. On the day of our visit our guide gave about a 40 minute lecture on the history of schooling during the time (this was quite boring). I would have rather been able to tour the school house on my own and have read about its history in a brochure or pamphlet. I went with a large group so maybe having 40 people all over this 800 sq. foot room would not be good.
  • Great place to take your kids. My wife worked as a patron here for many years.
  • Good place to visit once
