HOWARD SCHOOL CHILI DINNER AND OPEN HOUSE


Fun and food was had by the many who came to share in our community dinner and fundraiser. For the first time, we held the dinner inside the school because it was so cold and windy outside. Thanks to those who braved the weather and enjoyed each others' company.


THE GARAGE SALE WAS A SMASHING SUCCESS!

 

Thank you very much for all your donations. We had many people attend, buy treasures and listen to the Howard School story.


LOCAL PERRY TOWNSHIP GROUP holds its meeting at Howard School





History is important.  Connecting with our past helps us understand where we are today.  You can connect with history by joining as a member of Howard School.

The Howard One-Room School is a place for children and adults to connect with Boone County's heritage.

Our Connection team needs your help.  We are looking for children and adults alike to experience being taught by our school marms as it was taught in 1881.

Connecting children and adults to local history

Since 1881, Howard Schoolhouse has been a part of Indiana's history. 


After closing in 1916, the school and community center fell to almost total destruction while storing grain and farm equipment. 


Since 2004, a group of dedicated citizens restored it to its original purpose that now celebrates Boone County's past.  The schoolhouse is a living history museum for use by children and adults alike to experience what school was like in 1881.
