On July 29, the Sundays at the Schoolhouse program will feature a quill writing demonstration and a 1929 Model A Ford Roadster Pickup Truck, owned by Jerry Reuben of Ridgefield Hardware. An ice cream truck will be on the premises for frozen treats!
Step back in time into the 18th-century Peter Parley Schoolhouse! Watch a video about Peter Parley, its most famous “scholar”. See old desks, quill pens, and a potbellied stove. Find out which of Ridgefield’s twelve little red schoolhouses was closest to your house. Read the strict teacher’s rules and play with colonial toys!
The schoolhouse is open from 1 pm to 4 pm the last Sunday of each month, from May through October. Click here for directions.
