Tour the schoolhouse and explore the exhibits installed in Spring 2017. A docent will be on-site for your questions. When the Bohannon School was built in 1901, its first occupants could not have known that their school would still be fulfilling its intended role in education more than 100 years later. With its inkwells, McGuffey readers, and wood-burning stove resting in the corner, the school is reminiscent of a long ago era when the Golden Rule and the three R's were the mainstays of education. Dedicated as the Gerald L. Poor Museum, it now stands as a monument to rural education. The schoolhouse is located on the southwest corner of Preston and West Campus Drive streets. Admission is free and the schoolhouse is open to the public on the Second Saturday of each month June through September.
