It is back to school time! Imagine yourself in the 1800s as a youngster in a small rural community learning the “3 Rs” in a one-room schoolhouse.  Catherine Gill from the West Bay Common School Children’s Museum will share stories of how an 1898 Schoolmarm taught children ages 8 to 17 all together in one room. Stop by and visit Miss Gill for a lesson in living history and how this iconic tradition shaped education for generations.
