Schoolhouse

This historic country school is open to visitors the second Tuesday of June through the first Friday in September each year. Stop inside 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday to learn about what school was like in the early 1900s. Sit in a desk, write on a slate, say the Pledge of Allegiance and even ring the school bell for all to hear.

 

The Westport Schoolhouse is completely volunteer-run. Shifts are 10 a.m.-noon and noon-2 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday. If interested in volunteering, please contact Kiley Roth at kroth@co.dickinson.ia.us or call 712-336-6352. All training is provided.
