Tour

Miss Welstead, the 1908 school Mistress, is in! Drop by the schoolhouse for heritage games and to learn all about a 1908 school day. Preserved to the year 1908, the schoolhouse was built in 1859 to replace an earlier school that was destroyed by fire, S.S. #4 (School Section #4) was large and bright, with many windows and carefully chosen décor to encourage attention and obedience. This sturdy limestone structure hosted local children for 89 years until 1948. It was the centre of the community, used for the club meetings, adult language classes, and the much-anticipated annual Christmas pageant. The schoolhouse has been authentically restored to show a typical rural classroom in 1908. During the summer, it is open for guided tours and throughout the year, students on field trips to experience a day-in-the-life of a turn-of-the century child.
