posted by NF Library

The New Fairfield Historical Society invites the public to an opening at the historic, one-room, Little Red Schoolhouse on July 19, 2020, from 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. The schoolhouse is located on Brush Hill Rd at the corner of Marjorie Rd. in New Fairfield, CT. One of seven built to educate the children of New Fairfield, the Little Red Schoolhouse offers a glimpse into the history of the town as well as how children were taught over 100+ years ago. Volunteers will be on-site to answer any questions. Fun and interesting for the whole family!
Considering the safety of attendees as well as the volunteers, masks will be required to enter the schoolhouse. We appreciate cooperation while observing COVID-19 guidelines.
