Schoolhouse

Answering a Question in the One Room SchoolhouseSet among our apple orchard, just east of the Mining Camp, is a replica of a 1900 one-room country schoolhouse.

While the construction materials are new, they capture the architectural features of the past. For example, when suitable windows and doors couldn't be found, they were custom made to duplicate those used in 1900.

The interior is a blend of re-creations and antiques. The slate blackboard and coat hooks came from an abandoned school in Kansas City, Kansas.

The desks came from all over the United States and show signs of years of learning. Another great find is our working pot-bellied stove. If these antiques could talk, what stories we would hear!

The one-room country schoolhouse is closed during history tours, which are generally during the week, in the morning.
