We passed by this structure as we were walking along St. George Street and taking in the sites. We didn't take the opportunity to go into the building nor the adjacent gardens....maybe next time. But you can imagine how it was back in the day...More

Beautiful experience to see the oldest wooden Schoolhouse in the USA. Love to see José Martí (Cuban National Hero) bust and the cuban flag in the yard behind the school.

I love architecture and believe me, this little school house was built well and has survived many storms. It is still standing and looks amazing.

Amazing little building; but I emphasize little. Only two rooms in all, lovely garden, and a gift-shop. Be sure to check out the heavy iron chain that wraps over the building, securing it to the ground during hurricanes! Inside, two or three animatronic figures (which...More

I think this school house could try to modernize their presentations.. the outside is great, and I did love to see how a class might have been conducted, but those puppet people are just creepy

We were really excited to go here...we are both teachers. Even with a dollar off coupon, it just wasn't worth it. There is a brief animatronic presentation, and we didn't really feel like it painted the teacher in a very good light. The building is...More

Like with many old buildings, the structures are small so be aware of busy times / crowded times (check Google) when you plan your visit so that you have the opportunity to see what you would like. The main schoolhouse as a creepy but cool...More

It’s five dollars a person to get in, but it’s certainly worth the admission. I found it very interesting to see a school house that existed that long ago. It was different than many school houses I had seen in re-created villages. This one was...More

This doesn't take much of your time, but it's cute. There's an outdoor garden path that displays some statues of some of the countries leaders who provided different opportunities. The garden itself could use some serious clean-up, but maybe it has to do with the...More

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.
