Join local historian Dave Downs for an in-person lecture about the Hornbine one-room schoolhouse.
Dave Downs shares the history of the Hornbine School, a historic one-room schoolhouse at 144 Hornbine Road in Rehoboth. Built in 1862 and operated until 1937, it is the best-preserved rural schoolhouse in the birthplace of public education. The school was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983 and now serves as a local history museum. Downs will give a history of the school building, its neighborhood, and the development of education in Rehoboth.
The presentation will be held in person at the Carpenter Museum. Free for Rehoboth Antiquarian Society Members; $5 for Non-members. Learn more and register: www.rehobothantiquarian.org/carpenter-museum/2021-speaker-series
