One Room School Flyer

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 20 or Thursday June 22 at the school house on 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 our 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 16, 2023.  Registration forms are available at the museum at 2 North Broadway, New Ulm or by emailing

For more information, please call: 507-233-2621 or email:

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