Welcome to Heritage School!

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.

During the 2016-17 school year, students from 53 classrooms in 25 schools participated in the three-hour living history event.

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. View photos of the Heritage School Museum
