The School exhibit displays a typical school classroom of the past and has a photo display of country schools which were in the county until 1926 (Allendale area) or 1948 (Mt. Carmel area).
This simple little desk was used by Miss Anna Lee Jones, who taught language arts for many years in the Mt. Carmel grade schools.
This map shows the location of all the country schools in Wabash County.
Several ornate diplomas from area students are shown here along with renderings of schools of the past.
