The one room schoolhouse was like stepping back in time. Because it is small it doesn't take long to see. The Eastham Museum on the other side is small also but has many interesting displays about the history of the Cape.

This was a one-room school house back in the old days and has been lovingly and painstakingly preserved. Much is still in the classroom--including portraits of former students in period dress.
