Explore the Era of the One-Room Schoolhouse 

You don’t have to walk uphill, both ways, to discover the history of Wisconsin schoolhouses. At Reed School, class is back in session, and this time fun and games are encouraged! Explore this 1915 school and see how students learned and thrived in a classroom environment without the internet, computers, electricity, or even running water. Don’t forget to erase the chalkboard!
