Old Depot Museum offers One-Room School days for Homeschooling families in May

Ottawa, Kansas—Many traditional fourth graders have spent a day in the Old Depot Museum’s One-Room School. This May, the museum is extending the program to the homeschooling community.

The One-Room School program is an opportunity for children to step back in time to discover what a school day was like in a rural one-room school more than a century ago. In addition to time period-appropriate classroom instruction, students will experience how children dressed, behaved, and played in 1910.

Children ages 7 to 13 are welcome to sign up for either the Tuesday, May 17 or Thursday, May 19 session. Each one-day program begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 1 p.m.

Because the one-room schoolroom is small, registration is limited to 20 children for each session. The cost is $3 per child and registration by May 13 is required. Register by calling or visiting the Old Depot Museum, 135 West Tecumseh, Ottawa, Kansas, 66067, (785) 242-1250, or by registering online at https://squareup.com/store/old-depot-museum/.

The Old Depot Museum strives to educate visitors about the importance of trains in small towns and the history of Franklin County, Kansas. It is operated by the Franklin County Historical Society.

Founded in 1937, the Franklin County Historical Society strives to preserve, present, and promote the history of Franklin County, Kansas.
