Little Red Schoolhouse Oct. 28

Photo of the Little Red Schoolhouse at UWWHave you ever wondered why there is a Little Red Schoolhouse on Moraine Hill? On Friday, October 28, at 2:30 pm, you can come to the dedication of the new sign for the Schoolhouse. Learn how it came to be at Whitewater and why remembering one-room schools is important to UW-Whitewater and our students.

Are you interested in knowing more about one-room schools? Search HALCAT (Harold Andersen Library’s catalog) to find titles such as One-room schools of Jefferson County (Special Collections, 1st floor, Rm. 1230), One-room schools of the Middle West: An illustrated history (3rd-floor Main OVERSIZE Collection, LB1567 .F85 1994), and One-room country schools: History and recollections from Wisconsin (3rd-floor Main Collection, LC5147.W6 A67 1996). Additional titles are available at other UW campuses, and UWW students and staff may borrow them using the free Universal Borrowing service. Requested titles arrive in 2-4 weekdays.
