Friends of Cornell School
The Friends of Cornell School is a non-profit organization, begun in 1987, whose purpose at that time was the restoration and preservation of an 1886 one-room schoolhouse. The Friends of Cornell School offer a living history program in which an actual school day at a one-room schoolhouse is recreated for area schoolchildren. Students are encouraged to dress in period costume, bring lunch pails, learn lessons the old way, and always show the proper respect to the schoolmarm. This program allows our organization to preserve the heritage that one-room schools brought to our nation.
