Went through the schoolhouse a few years ago. Definitely see it once, but unless you are with a new group I would not do it again.

This was a pretty cool stop. Our hotel room looked out over the pretty garden, so that was a nice few. The school house is very small (as one would think), but I did learn some cool things about the first school houses in America....More

Interesting for it's age primarily. Stop, given the size of the building itself, there's not Nick one could do with it other than the animotronic presentation that's there.

This is the oldest schoolhouse in America dating back to the 18th century. They added a heavy chain around it in 1937 to keep it from blowing away in strong winds. It's very small and I guess they did the best they could with the...More

Since this old original schoolhouse doesn't take long in time or much in money. why would you not stop to view it? It has merit for lasting more than 100 years alone! plus you get to ring the school bell in the yard. Go see...More

This place is a great place to spend a a few hours strolling through the old town. It’s not a huge MUST DO, I must admit. Lots of little shops and cute things around.

This was an inexpensive visit to the Oldest Wooden Schoolhouse. There is a beautiful outdoor garden and it’s worth talking the short, unguided tour. If you are a teacher, the gift shop is a wonderful place to buy teacher gifts.

I don't know anything about paranormal investigations. If I posted something of that nature, it was merely intended to be restatement of something presented to me as a fact about a place. I prefer to live amongst the living.

I have no idea about paranormal activity. It seemed like quite the normal schoolhouse for the time period to me.
