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
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.
Historical Day/Museum Open House will be Saturday,
June 10, 2017
