School is in session

Dressed as 19th-Century teachers, Linda Schmidt and Deb DeFeo welcome visitors to the Hurlbutt Street Schoolhouse’s open house on Sept. 25. Visitors learned what it was like to be a student more than 100 years ago. They were introduced to the McGuffey readers, horn books, writing on slates, and got to try writing with a quill pen.
