Historical Society offers one-room schoolhouse camp experience

NEW ULM — The Brown County Historical Society is offering a living history camp for children grades K-5. Participants will experience all aspects of a school day in a one-room school, much like children did during the 19th century.

This is a one-day event held from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday June 11 or Thursday June 13 at the school house on the Brown County Fairgrounds. Cost of the program is $ 15.00 per student. Class size is limited.

Participants will spend the day going back in time to a one-room country school house in Brown County during the late 1800s. They will experience writing, music, games, reading, arithmetic lessons, chores and the love of learning that made the one-room school house a unique part of our heritage.

Students are encouraged to wear clothes of the 19th century. This could be long skirts, aprons, bonnets, bib overalls or knickers. Each child should bring a cold lunch, possibly in a basket or pail.

Pre-registration is required. All registration forms must be returned along with the $15 fee to the museum by Friday, June 7, 2019. Registration forms are available at the museum at 2 North Broadway, New Ulm, or by emailing programs@browncountyhistorymn.org.

For more information, please call the BCHS Museum at 507-233-2620.
