Please join us Sunday June 5th at 3:00PM for an illustrated presentation.

School Days with the Traveling Schoolmarm: A Chronicle of American Country School Images, Artifacts, Recitations, and Adventures.

Susan Webb, AKA The Traveling Schoolmarm, will bring us back to the late 19th century with tales and adventures from her over 20 years of researching the One Room Schoolhouse.  For the past 20 years, Mrs. Webb has been coming to Norfolk to instruct the Botelle School’s 5th grade history students in a day of living history.  The students are encouraged to play their part and dress in period style clothing and pack a lunch pail.  They then head to the Little Red School House for a day of fun and learning.  The Sunday afternoon program, thou geared to an adult audience will be fun for the whole family!  The program is an in-person event held in the museum.
