Join the Norwalk Historical Society for a trip back in time to those good old fashioned school days where author Melinda K. Elliot will present a lively discussion: School Days: Connecticut Schoolhouses Through Time.

There was a time when you could walk through Connecticut and find schoolhouses scattered across the landscape every few miles. Schools were literally everywhere: in the road, at the edge of the tobacco field, on top of a rock hill, or next to the meeting house. Each schoolhouse was made for one teacher to keep school for all the neighborhood children.  Now in the 21st century, schooling has changed but these now forgotten one-room schools can still be seen.  Author Melinda K. Elliot will uncover the stories of the numerous renovated and restored schoolhouses that still dot our state, including Norwalks very own Downtown District School at Mill Hill Historic Park.

Ms. Elliot will also be selling and signing copies of her new book, "Connecticut Schoolhouses Through Time".  

A tour of the Downtown District School, featuring a new exhibition on Norwalks one-room schoolhouses, and a lesson with the schoolmarm will follow the lecture.
