NH's One-Room Rural School Houses
Tuesday, September 2, 7:00 PM at the Meredith Historical Society. Hundreds of one-room schools dotted the landscape of New Hampshire a century ago and were the backbone of primary education for generations of children. Revered in literature and lore, they actually were beset with problems, some of which are little changed today. Steve Taylor explores the lasting legacies of the one-room school and how they echo today. Sponsored by a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council, the Meredith Historical Society and the Friends of the Meredith Library. Light refreshments will be served.
