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.

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!

It's tiny & maybe lame that you have to pay, but it's still cool to look at. I thought the store was really cute with its throwback toys & books. I think it is worth taking a peek into history.

Wonderful place to visit in St. Augustine. It is a treat to visit historical sites such as this. Great reminders of going back to the basics of education--before computers, before calculators, before dry erase boards
