Schoolhouse at the Red Mill Museum, Clinton, New Jersey
Last week I showed you the Historic Red Mill at the Red Mill Museum Village in Clinton, New Jersey. There is indeed a little village at the Red Mill site, and this week I present to you the little schoolhouse!
This schoolhouse was not original to this site. According to the Red Mill Museum website:
In 1974, the circa 1860 Bunker Hill Schoolhouse was moved to the Museum grounds from a site near Sky Manor Airport in Franklin Township. Former Curator Claire Young remembers that moving the school house took several days even though it was only five miles away. She followed behind the building picking up pieces of the siding that fell in the road, to replace later. Some of those boards had the school children’s initials carved in them from long ago.
I will have more photos of the village next week!
