Hornbine School Museum Activities


Would you like to take a short, fun, inexpensive and educational day trip to a historic land mark this Summer? Less than a gallon of gas will take your family to Rehoboth’s Hornbine School Museum. The old schoolhouse, built about 1845 – 46, will be open to the public every 2nd and 4th Sunday from 2 to 4 PM - June to September starting JUNE 9th.

We have several displays, binders and artifacts of interest. Did you know there have been three Palmer River Schools? The first two where located on Mason Street. We have the teacher’s desk from the original Palmer River School on display at the Hornbine School Museum! The Hornbine School Museum is located at 144 Hornbine Road in the south east corner of Rehoboth.

This year, our first event was a very successful Children’s Doll Tea Party organized by Dawn Azar and Cathy Potter. (See Photo(s) By the time you read this article, most of the 17 classes from Dighton, Swansea, Seekonk and Somerset will have visited our Museum and we will have attended the Strawberry Festival at Carpenter Museum.
