Continuing my exploration of places to see in my area, I came across the Little Red Schoolhouse. I have probably driven & been driven by this area countless of times & never noticed this school or the historical significance of it. It's right across the street from Riverside County Park. It's on both the New Jersey & United States National... More

It is a great place to visit to step back in time and appreciate the smaller things in life. This takes you to a time in life where everyone lived a real life. Such a great place... More

This was a amazing brief walk into history. The original school house is something that I have never experienced before. The display was to commemorate past military members of the United States and its allies. The information given by the members of the folks that are preserving this history was so interesting to hear. The children who were in the... More
