The Cranberry Township Historical Society provides docents at Sample School during our regular season hours, which are: Wednesday's from 12:30 pm to 3 pm and Saturday's from 10 am to 12:30 pm during the months of May through September. We also open the school during certain special events like the Summer Concert Series at the Rotary Gazebo next to Sample School. During these regular hours, visitation is FREE.
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 photo shoot. 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.
