Go back to the past and experience a classroom from 1876. From its old flap-seated desks to a properly attired schoolmarm prepared to hear the daily recitations of reading, 'riting and 'rithmetic, visitors will see an authentically restored and appointed 1876 two-room school house.
One side of the schoolhouse is a captivating educational museum that features a variety of nostalgic exhibits, artifacts and pertinent school memorabilia. The second room is a restored classroom, taking the visitor back in time. Adjacent to the building is Sheboygan's newest elementary school, Longfellow, which helps accent the changes education has undergone.
With reservations, groups/classes can take on the role of students, experiencing the rules, regulations and curriculum of the time.
Open 1:00-4:00 p.m. on Tuesdays during the summer or by appointment. Visitors can call (920) 459-3512 to schedule times to observe classes in session for fourth graders during the school year. Admission is free.
