Posted by mainetodo on Wednesday, August 29 @ 17:52:46 EDT

Fall, Summer: With school starting across the state, fall is the perfect season to visit some of Maine's one-room school houses. These antique school houses offer visitors a view of what school life was like in days gone by and life in simpler times. The students didn't have paper and pens but, instead chalk and slate boards in the late 1800's as visitors are offered a view of these classrooms. A wood stove was used to heat these one room school houses which hadempty desk with inkwells that use to be filled with eager students

can be found as well as the recitaion bench and a dipper and pail providing the drinking water for the day. The town of Wells has The Schoolhouse which was built during the late 1800's for less than $900.00. The school housed 35 to 40 students kindergarten through eighth. If you have never had the chance to visit one of these historic gems, it's worth the trip and the kids may just have a new appreciation for all they have today.
