Old wood building with dirt floors, low lighting and wooden benches for seats. The animation of teacher and students was interesting. The kitchen was in a separate building in case of fire and the teacher's living quarters were above classroom. Neat look at history.

I really liked seeing the oldest wooden schoolhouse. Coming from Okeechobee, we have a pretty old schoolhouse here too but nothing like this. It shows the uneven stone/dirt floors and where the students and teachers would be (animatronics). Even has a mirror to see in the old teacher's apartment on the second floor. I couldn't believe that the last student... More

Neat to see such an old structure that has not had any reconstruction. It would have been really neat if we could have went upstairs to see living accommodations. Nifty stop. $5 per adult. They had a recording playing so you could learn a little about what it was like.

This was our second visit to the schoolhouse. We enjoy learning all the history about schoolhouse. It is neat to be in a building that was built so long ago and to hear about some of the people who lived there.

The Oldest Wooden Schoolhouse is a cute, if small attraction complete with animatronic dolls and information plates. The attraction is completely self-guided (you push a button to start the recording), and the dungeon below the stairs (for naughty school children) is quite cute. I enjoyed this visit and purchased a slate pencil in the gift shop.

Took my 14 yr old boy in and he now sooo appreciates his school. It was exciting for me to see my son really interested and being educated at the same time. He was fascinated with the whole concept.

Saw the reviews and thought we'd give it a visit. Really good for the kids to see "how it was" in school. Only a relatively small fee so worth it
