Events for 2017
Cracker Barrel: Attending a Country School
Long after the establishment of Arcadia High School in 1910, country schools, usually one-room, were still much needed, and they flourished in Manistee and Benzie Counties. We have area citizens who were even attending them into the 1950s. In August, we plan to bring a few of these citizens together in a Cracker Barrel session and have them convey just what it was like to attend and possibly teach in a country, one-room school. This was a time when citizenship, practical problem solving, and values were an important part of the school curricula.
Join us. Sunday August 20, 2017 at 7 pm
