School’s in Session!

There is a really neat old schoolhouse near us that was built in 1889.  The schoolhouse is called the Tassajara School House.  I’ve seen it before but this time I really got a good look around.

There was a very nice man there named Ed, complete with cowboy hat and all.  He takes care of the little school house and I could tell he really loves doing so because he was happy to share a bit of the history and what goes on there.  He explained that school children from around the area come and experience a day at school by dressing in period costumes and attending an old-fashioned class.  They say the original Pledge of Allegiance to the flag of that era and they even play as kids did in those times by walking on stilts.  Amazing!

Ed mentioned that I would be welcomed to attend a class sometime as long as I sit in the back, lol.   Thank goodness I can still get in one of those small desks….and even better that I could get out.  😉   My homework will be to go back and take some pics when class is in session.

Here is the first image I took of the exterior.   This was taken on my iPhone and modified in Snapseed.
