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

So worth the small fee. It really is a step back in time. The animatronics classroom is perfect to explain how things were back then. The garden is also lovely. Don't miss the chains holding down the building!

There is a very small fee to enter the old school house,but you can find coupons for a dollar off all over the place.This is a great place for those interested in local history or just enjoy seeing how people lived in times past.

It gives you a real look at what school was like many years ago. The little school house is old but well preserved. The garden area out back is beautiful to sit and enjoy.

This attraction is very reasonably priced and does not take a lot of time to go through. The gardens around the backside of the school are very pretty, and there is some interesting history to be learned about the way school was during that time period. There is an automated class and teacher that give a "history lesson" explaining how... More

Dated and worn down. But, cute for schoolchildren to see the difference from what they have today. The garden behind the schoolhouse is amazing. I could've spent quite a bit of time enjoying the garden.

This wood old school is amazing. The building is made of cedar and cypress are erected using hand made nails & wooden pens. Those charged with its keep have done a great job preserving this 200+ year old structure. If you're in the area, don't miss it.

It is tiny but very interesting to see the classroom, the "time out" it was cool. It was neat to see the outhouse the well. My son got to ring the bell. It was a neat experience!
