Hornbine School Open House 2nd and 4th Sundays


The Hornbine School Museum is open to the public on the second and fourth Sunday this July, August and September from 2 to 4 p.m. If you are fascinated with history, you will enjoy perusing our numerous binders filled with pictures and information about the many one room schoolhouses in Rehoboth. We have activities for the children which include outdoor games and writing with a “Slate Pencil”.

Frances Jones Magan, who attended the school when it was open as a public school, is almost always there. She is a wealth of information about the school and the Hornbine neighborhood.

During the past fifty one years, under the guidance of the Rehoboth Historical Commission, many volunteers have contributed to the maintenance and operation of the building. Cathy Potter very capably took over most responsibilities in 2015. Through Cathy's efforts the building has continued to be open for classes and the public to enjoy.

The Hornbine School is located in the south east corner of Rehoboth on Hornbine Road at the intersection of Baker Road. Come visit us during any of the following dates! (July 14th & 28th, August 11th & 25th, and September 8th & 22nd)
