Step into the past and experience a classroom from 1876!


From its old flap-seated desks to a properly attired schoolmarm or schoolmaster prepared to hear the daily recitations of reading, 'riting and 'rithmetic, visitors will see an authentically restored and appointed 1876 two-room school house.

From 1993 until the present day, participation in the Heritage School's three-hour living history event has grown. In the 2022-2023 school year, 51 classrooms from 24 different schools attended.

One side of the schoolhouse is a captivating educational museum that features a variety of nostalgic exhibits, artifacts, and pertinent school memorabilia. The second room is a restored classroom, taking the visitor back in time. Adjacent to the building is one of Sheboygan's newer elementary schools, Longfellow, which helps accent the changes education has undergone. 

With reservations during the school year, fourth-grade classes take on the role of students and experience the rules, regulations, and curriculum of an 1876 classroom. 


Heritage School is open to the public on various Tuesdays during the summer from 12:30 - 2:30 p.m. This summer, we will be open on June 18 and 25, July 16, 23, and 30, and August 6. Admission is free. Please call (920) 459-3512 for more information.
