Schoolmarms & Schoolmasters Wanted: Become A Teacher at The Eight Square Schoolhouse
Take some local history, a landmark building, a flair for the dramatic and a roomful of kids. Mix well and you will have an unforgettable trip to the past. The History Center is looking for teachers at our 1827 schoolhouse on Hanshaw Road in Dryden. In the spring and fall, area fourth grade and home school children spend a day immersed in rural one-room school education of over a century ago via our Living History program. If you are interested in becoming part of our unique teaching team, please contact Julia Taylor, (607) 273-8284 ext. 229 or EightSquare@TheHistoryCenter.net.
