A Look INSIDE the Quaint One-Room Schoolhouses of Yesteryear

These one-room schoolhouses were also used for other community activities as well – like town meetings and sometimes the buildings were also used for church services. The 1930s and 1940s was the last time that many of these schools were attended by children, though a few lingered on in rural areas where there weren’t enough families to warrant building a multi-grade school.
