Back to School     

Saturday, September 12   10:00am–4:00pm

During this interactive program, school-age youngsters (5 & up) will ride in a horse-drawn wagon to the one-room schoolhouse where hundreds of Pleasant Valley children once learned their ABCs. The unique history lesson includes doing before- and after-school farm chores, playing games in the school yard during recess, and of course learning arithmetic, English, and social studies under the tutelage of a schoolmarm. At 1:00, visitors will have an opportunity to meet Larry Kidder, author of an award-winning book about the school itself, and participate in a 'box social' in which homemade pies are auctioned to benefit the purchase of period furnishings for the school.
