When we began work on our site, there were times when it seemed every one room schoolhouse ever built in this country was still around and either restored or converted to other uses.  While this certainly isn't true, in most parts of the country there are examples fairly close by.

Description
From 1817 to 1870, the Academy provided higher education for area boys and as
boarders. It was then used as a meeting hall, district school, and apartments
before becoming a museum of local history during the town's bicentennial in
1968. Displays include America's first dinosaur fossils, American Indian
artifacts, early textile machinery, farm implements, weapons and uniforms
from America's wars, and other local memorabilia.
