Histo3-The Schoolhouse Reader
If you missed Chuck Jacobs' great program on August 9, showing us what the Little Red School looked like in the old days, we have an autographed copy available to circulate. Chuck has also donated several signed copies to be sold for $2 each to benefit the Library and the Historical Society.
This little booklet is a gem. The research Chuck put into this is fantastic, and there are some really awesome facts. So here's one to whet your appetite:
In 1863, South Thomaston has 12 school districts and 651 pupils enrolled. If you'd like more facts like this, come into the Little Red Schoolhouse on Monday, Wednesday or Saturday and get your copy.
