Days of the One Room Schoolhouse
They stand as monuments to a bygone era, silent witnesses to the dreams of common people who knew the value of education. Once, these log, brick and frame structures were sources of pride: focal points for community gatherings, but today, most are gone.

One Room SchoolWBGU-PBS's newest documentary outlines the history of the first one-room schoolhouses built in this region, how they developed over the years and what a typical school day was like through interviews with those who remember those by-gone days.
