One room schoolhouse in Jonesborough, TN
The school building was moved the seven miles from Knob Creek to Jonesborough and placed in its current location behind the Visitors Center. Once in the new location, Oak Hill School was lovingly restored to the way that it may have appeared in the 1890s. From using paint analysis to find the original wall color to collecting the oral histories of living alumni, every effort was made to ensure that those who enter the doors today can see what students in Knob Creek would have seen over a century ago.
Today, Oak Hill School invites students to come for a day-long field trip and enroll in the class of 1892-93. Reading, writing, arithmetic, history, geography – even the pledge of allegiance – are all as they were prior to the turn of the last century. Our curriculum is based on the detailed 1892-93 diary of a Washington County School Superintendent. Students gain an understanding of the lives of their predecessors through this glimpse of a typical school day. Designed for a single classroom, a day at Oak Hill School is an experience students will treasure. - http://www.heritageall.org/education/programs/oak-hill-school/
