Four years ago, our Southern Door School Archives volunteers were gifted a one room schoolhouse, which we moved to Southern Door School property and just recently completed the restoration. We are having so much fun having classes visit and learning how different education was like. A friend sent me the Little Red Schoolhouse web site and through that I discovered you. I can't wait to get your book to read and share. This is my Christmas present to me! Our restoration project was so rewarding, but now we are realizing that the fun is just starting.
Our School Archives group was formed about ten years ago, with the purpose of preserving the history of all the early schools in our school district. This has been such a fun project and we have uncovered 37 schools to date. This generated a project I was involved in this past summer with our local Door County WI Historical Museum, researching all the early schools in Door County, which today total 97, which is quite a few for our little county. It's exciting to see all the interest this has generated!
