Historic School Experience
Living History is an important part of our programming at Isanti County Historical Society. History and imagination come together at our summer Historic Old Time Schools. Students will travel back in time and have the opportunity to appreciate traditions from attending a One Room School House in rural Isanti County.
Letter to Parents from West Riverside School
Students who are in grades 1-8 and over the age of six find out what it was like to attend a rural school in 1900, and we ask them to wear old-fashioned clothes, bring two sharpened lead pencils, an old-fashioned lunch in a basket, or pail, and their own hand towel. Students may bring old books, toys, wooden articles, etc. to show at school. More information on the 2022 class can be found in the letter linked above.
Family and friends are welcome to visit the school any day during school hours. There will be a program by the students on Friday.
