Center Schoolhouse will be open for visitors Sunday, June 25th

Come visit Burlington’s historic one-room schoolhouse, which served students in grades 1-8 for 150 years. Take a seat at a desk, try out some lessons, and enjoy toys and games from long ago. Explore the historic furnishings and photographs and chat with a Burlington Historical Society volunteer about childhood, education, and life in this small town in the 1800s and early 1900s.
