It's amazing all the rules you must follow just to be a teacher there. It must have been hard to teach many grades in a small building. Teachers in those days seemed to be able to keep the kids in line.

Our fourth grade class enjoyed our visit and class with the school Marm. It was great to see what school was like in the late 1800's.

Beautifully restored School House. I entered and watched a group of school children being taught how things were done in school. "Way back Then" A good lesson for them.

It is small but it shows what teachers and students experienced during that time period. Some interesting reading on the rules for students and teachers.
