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.

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.

Family and friends are welcome to visit the school any day during school hours. There will be a program by the students on Friday.
