This little gem of a museum is staffed by former educators, all on a volunteer basis, and presents an interesting bit of local history. The hours are fairly limited, so I recommend you check in advance to see if they will be open.

Discovered this gem while researching things to see and do in Kingston. If you have a free hour, you will enjoy exploring Kingston's past in this schoolhouse which includes old typewriters and cameras, as well as a one room schoolhouse
