Old School House Reunion

One thing I love about summer is reunions, I love visiting with people and going around a big
table of food and trying all the different dishes. A few weeks ago I was able to attend my fathers school reunion. It is a little two room school. It is now a museum and is open a few times a year for
people to go into and look around. It reminds me of Little House on the Prairie.I feel like I am going
back in time whenever I walk into the old school house. I think about all the little children that got their education in this little school My father was five years old when he started school there.
The reunion is every two years. I will share some photo's of our day of fun there. I especially love
the little cubby where the childrens water glasses were kept, old snuff glasses, two still remain with names on them.



Love the old floor, the desks and blackboard.

Some of the school books.

Old water pitcher and cubby that held the childrens water glasses.

School items, look on the bottom shelf at the huge paddle,

Love the black board.

Love this old desk, bench and books

School bell and old book

Old lunch pails, and metal sirup bucket and book shelf

  4. What fun! When I lived in North Dakota (1991-99) one of my friends lived in a rural area & her children went to school in a one-room schoolhouse. Very cool : )

  5. What a nice old schoolhouse. There is one at the museum in the town my mom lives where we have visited. So love that blackboard. My dad actually went to one and actually had to walk a mile each way. TFS. Janice

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
