You don’t have to walk up hill, both ways, to explore the history of Wisconsin schoolhouses at Reed School. Before 1960, most rural Wisconsin children were educated in a one-room school just like this. One-room education reflects a less mobile, more rural time in our history. Reed School, built in 1915, served as a one-room country school through 1951. It provided a first through eighth-grade education with only one teacher. The school is typical of the more than 6,000 one-room schools that dotted the landscape of rural Wisconsin.
