Head School House/Cemetery Marker

On October 2,201o the Historical society took part in the dedication of that historic marker. Over 125 people attended the event sponsored and planned by the Heritage commission. It included HHS remarks, RCSHPC remarks, Town Council remarks and featured school children leading the audience in the pledge. reading a recitation and unveiling the beautiful Marker. all ages participated and we heard remarks from the ” school marms” who conducted a one room school house program . A cemetery tour was also conducted

It was a truly a historic event and great thanks goes to all who made the project and the dedication a success.  The HHs would like to request any one who has photographs of the program to forward to the HHS at the email address of jsulli9604@aol.com

Here is a view of the Marker with the school house in the background- notice the wooden building on the left this is the privy.  The school house is one of only a few that have a privy still existing.
