For groups desiring a specially scheduled tour, these can be arranged year round based on the availability of the schoolhouse and a docent, for a donation of $1 per head with a minimum $10 donation. Keep in mind in the winter, the school is thermally challenged (no heat).

The school can also be used as a backdrop for your wedding photos. We have had many teachers request interior photo sessions for their weddings. We request a donation of $50 for a wedding session. You supply the wedding party and a photographer. Keep in mind that the school is not air conditioned and most of the windows do not open. We do not host weddings, wedding receptions or other parties inside the schoolhouse.
