The Homemaking Party: The One Room Schoolhouse

Welcome to the Homemaking Party! If you haven't already, please sign up for email subscriptions in my sidebar. I've just started a new email list and would love to send you updates!

This past week, our family visited a one room schoolhouse here in Northwest Arkansas.  It was built in 1905 and is being preserved by former students and teachers.

We arrived promptly at 9:00 am and the two "teachers" led the kids through Pioneer Day lessons and activities for four hours!

It was a wonderful experience and the very best field trip we've ever gone on.

Funny how so many of my Facebook friends thought my kids actually go to that school daily. Ha! Guess people think I'm more "out there" than I thought!

Hope you're all having a lovely week and thanks for linking up at the Homemaking Party!

  7. Thank you for hosting! What a great field trip! Looks like fun and great pictures!

  8. Sarah! What a fabulous field trip and mission to preserve the school for future generations!! Would have loved to take my kids to such a place back in my homeschooling days. We did plenty of historical dressing, though, but the setting an an authentic schoolhouse is grand!

    Thanks for featuring me last week. I still have a long way to go to reach my funding goal - if I don't reach it I don't get any money towards the project and am back to square one. Trusting God every step of the way - Fable Springs Parables is just the ticket for a one room classroom!!


  9. Thanks for the lovely post & for hosting & God bless!

  14. So much fun! Reminds me of a place near where I grew up in Iowa called Living History Farms. They have an entire working farm for folks to experience through what I call the Laura Ingells Wilder lens and part of that is a one room school house. I can still remember when I went there as a kid.

  15. Looks so authentic. And I love looking at all the links.
