.Don’t miss this fun presentation about what it was like to attend school in one room with students of all ages! Join us via Zoom on December 15th when Dennis Picard will share the history, legends and myths about what was called “district” school education. One room schoolhouses were the norm in New England before the adoption of the graded elementary system in the latter half of the 19th century.
Dennis Picard, former Director of the Storrowton Village Museum in West Springfield has been a museum professional in the “Living History” field for over 40 years.
This program is cohosted by Storrs Library and Longmeadow Historical Society, and sponsored by Friends of Storrs Library.
