Go “Back to School” in Vermont

Jul 24, 2015

One-room schoolhouses were once a normal part of growing up for many children in New England and  beyond. Today, many of these buildings are no longer standing.

Back to School: Lessons from Norwich’s One-Room Schoolhouses is a new documentary film that explores the effort to preserve two remaining schoolhouses in Norwich, Vermont.

Hear from the last generation of students who went to school there, and find out how the community uses these historic buildings today.

Back to School is part of Historic New England’s Everyone’s History series.
