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.




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.
