Schoolhouse Documentation Project

Did you know that at one time there were almost ninety schools in the area now covered by the Wyalusing Area School District?

We want to learn more about those schools, and you can help. Do you own an old school building? Old photographs of schools, students, and teachers? Did you attend a small school before the consolidation in the 1950s? We would love to hear your stories and see your pictures.

Exploring the past can help us as a community to make more informed decisions about the future. We hope this project will make you think about and discuss how education in rural Pennsylvania has changed over the years, and what it should look like in the years to come.

Keep checking this page for updates on the Schoolhouse Project. And if you have something to share, get in touch!

The museum is moving!

Thanks to the generous support of our community we have purchased a new building. In the meantime visit our temporary exhibit in the Lodge Hall Annex on Church Street!
