One Room School House

June 18 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm


The Brown County Historical Society is offering a living history camp for children grades K – 5.  Participants will experience all aspects of a school day in a one-room school; much like children did during the 19th century. This is a one-day event held from 9:00am – 1:30pm on Tuesday, June 18 or Thursday, June 20 at the schoolhouse at the Brown County Fairgrounds. Cost of the program is $25.00 per student. Class size is limited.

Participants will spend the day going back in time to a one-room country school house in Brown County during the late 1800s. They will experience writing, music, games, reading, arithmetic lessons, chores and the love of learning that made the one-room school house a unique part of Brown County heritage.

Students are encouraged to wear clothes of the 19th century. This could be long skirts, aprons, bonnets, bib overalls or knickers.  Each child should bring a cold lunch, possibly in a basket or pail.

Pre-registration is required.  All registration forms must be returned along with the $25.00 fee to the museum by Friday, June 14. Registration forms are available by clicking here, in person at the museum at 2 North Broadway, New Ulm or by emailing

This program is made possible in part with support from the New Ulm Park and Recreation Department and the Brown County Fairgrounds.
