This is a must to check out. The most impressive thing to me is the chain and anchor they used to hold schoolhouse down doing hurricanes or high wind. Amazing idea that obviously worked.

Not sure it was worth the entrance fee, but the kids loved it - especially ringing the school bell. The place itself is one small building and another even smaller building that was the kitchen. Informative experience, and a very pretty garden area around the school house. This won't take long, so you may as well add this to your... More

The oldest schoolhouse was one of my favorite visits during my trip to Augustine. It is very small and a short visit, but a lot was seen in just a few minutes. The gift shop is full of cool souvenirs (if you are a teacher or a teacher's pet you will love it), you even get a free Bachelor/Bachelorette's degree... More

The Old school house cost about 4 dollars per person, I believe and was well worth it. We was only there for about an hour because it's a small structure but the information we learned was great. You walk into the fenced in garden which houses the kitchen and old school. Inside the schoolhouse you can learn a lot of... More

This takes about five minutes of your time that you will soon forget. However, the grounds are pretty.

There really wasn't much here but I did enjoy it. It was extremely hot though, both outside and inside. The gift shop has a lot of cute things for teachers (meeee!) so if you're looking for something like that, stop in.

If you are interested in historical sights this is a nice little place to check out. The place is small and the schoolhouse has an animation type presentation that is cheesy but it is a fun place to see for only $5. You get an idea of what is what like back in the day and you get to see... More

Very simple but guess that was what education was like in early colony America. Interesting to see the countries of the Americas that lent support to attraction. However not much to see in this limited attraction. Educators will probably enjoy it though. Kids would be surprised what education was like in the period

This place is not very big but has a whole lot of history. I love to have fun but when you can have fun and learn something it's even better. This place was probably cooler to me than my children but they still walked around with me and did all the neat stuff here. If you are going to this... More

Very small area for tourists, not enough history told. They could probably have actors outside the house and tell a little bit more about the time.
