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 to around 55 classrooms from 28 different schools each year. We are proud to share that in the spring of 2022, 30 classes from the Sheboygan Area School District were able to attend.

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. 


Prospective visitors can call (920) 459-3512 to schedule times to observe classes in session for fourth-graders during the school year. We are also open 12:00-3:00 p.m. on most Tuesdays during the summer or by appointment.


Admission is free.
