I have not been to this attraction in years and the first time my son has seen it. Great to see how schools were way back when. My son said he has a greater appreciation for school now

We really enjoyed the Oldest Wooden Schoolhouse! We got a $1 off discount with AAA and paid $4 per adult. It was fun and interactive. You get to ring the bell, listen to the teacher talk, and learn about school life 100 years ago. Very informative.

The biggest surprise to us is that the school house is two stories. The bottom housed the school, while the top housed the teacher and his family. The school house admission is $4 children 6-12 and $5 for adults. No senior or family rate, which I think is a shame. It is a nice property kept up well.

Back for a visit this month with a new batch of nieces & nephews. I find that kids up to early teens love to tour it. They all ring the bell, watch the Disney like animation & think about what life was like for the kids way back when. Free for St. John County residents & inexpensive for all others.... More

Very small and cute house, with a small little garden. They still have the bell they used back then...when you hear the sound of the bell is like going back in time. They have a mini-tour and at the end you receive a diploma. It was a nice experience.

Many times I’ve visited Saint Augustine. I brought my grandnephew here to honor his entering the Marine Corps to serve in the military. He found the Oldest Wooden Schoolhouse a curiosity—and an education. That this was the teacher’s living quarters upstairs and the classroom for youngsters of all ages downstairs is a surprise to many. The building—which recently went through... More

Such a cute stop to make while visiting. Shows brief history as to how they operated back then and when you walk in you can enjoy the yard behind the school house for some quiet.

We love learning about history. The oldest wooden school house is very cool! My kids really enjoyed looking at everything and learning about the history. The school house a souvenir shop with cute little knick knacks. The store is very small but filled with so many things. Definitely loved it.
