Lunch & Learn: Tales from the One-Room Schoolhouse

September 21, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

District Two One-room Schoolhouse

Get into the swing of back-to-school time at our September Lunch & Learn, Tales from the One-Room Schoolhouse. This talk will look at the history of one-room schoolhouses in the Monadnock region, how public education developed in New Hampshire and the ways the days of the one-room schoolhouse continue to shape education in the state today. Along the way, we will share some schoolhouse tales found in local histories.

After the program, the Monadnock Center’s District #8 Schoolhouse will be open for guests to enjoy.

Lunch & Learn programs begin at noon with a delicious light lunch of wrap sandwiches, salad, chips and a special dessert. After lunch, we enjoy a lively, illustrated talk.
