Eight Square Schoolhouse

The Eight Square Schoolhouse is an original one-room schoolhouse built in 1827 in Dryden, NY. It was operational as a school until 1945. Now, The History Center in Tompkins County runs a living history program at this site to explore a day in the life of students in 1892.

Eight Square Schoolhouse classes are limited to 25 students and 4 adults. For more information, click on "Programs @ 8sq" on the right-side menu.

The Spring 2020 season is upon us! We still have a few days available for classes to attend. Please reach out if you are interested in scheduling a trip.
