1800 LOG SCHOOLHOUSE

  Discovered  in the western end of the county years ago, this old schoolhouse was being used as a chicken coop. The owners donated it to the Society; it was hauled to the present site, placed on cement flooring, renovated, re-roofed, re-chinked and furnished much like it was in the "days of yore" when pioneer children attended classes.  This very small school was used to accommodate twenty students at one time in the past.  Even the horse was invited in during stormy weather.

   

Slate board in front of classroom.The school is used today for students participating in ESU 13 living history program.  Thousands of students have written with quill pens  in their penmanship class in the old Flowerfield school.  See the link "Flowerfield" to learn more about this 4th grade activity.
