Hornbine School Museum Open This Season


Thank you to Rehoboth's Tree Warden, Rob Johnson (and his crew). They cleared many years of small trees, brush, poison ivy and undergrowth from the Hornbine School grounds near the stone walls recently. The yard looks GREAT!

Unfortunately, this is the third year in a row that we were unable to host public school children at the school for a day of 19th century reenactments. But we do plan to have OPEN HOUSES every 2nd and 4th Sunday from June to September this year. We will open from 2 to 4 pm each of those Sundays. Make plans to visit us now by writing us in on your calendar.

We plan to have a small celebration for our Dear friend Fances Magan Jones on Sunday, June 26th. She will be turning 100 years young! Frances attended the Hornbine School and was one of the few students to continue her education and graduate from high school. In recent years, Frances has been visiting the school frequently. She helps the children write with their feather pens. She also recounts what it was like to live in the Hornbine Neighborhood and attend the school in the early 20th century.

Keep up to date with the museum by viewing our Facebook Page at “Hornbine School Museum”. We hope to see many of you during this season.
