1904 Spicer School House

This one room school house was built in 1904, a 1/2 mile north of Hickory Corners, which is about 21km southeast of the museum. It was named after the Spicer family, who contributed many of its first students. It is furnished with many of its original desks, chalk booards, books and the original Union Jack flag. The smallest shildren sat in the small desks at the front, and the larger students at the back. One teacher might have 8 different grades to teach. The school was the first large building to be moved to the museum in 1971.
