Ca. 1840 · Vergennes, Vermont

—Moved to Museum: 1947 —

The one-room Schoolhouse was the first structure moved to the Museum. The building has several distinct classical architectural features, including a projecting bell tower, arched door opening, and sash windows. The structure originally stood on land leased to the city of Vergennes by General Samuel Strong, a Revolutionary War officer and descendant of one of Addison County's first families, who stipulated that the property be used for educational purposes.
Inside are desks, a chalkboard featuring lesson plans, and children's schoolwork, which all suggest a 19th-century rural school.
