Iowa One-Room School Workshop 2014

Once again it’s time for the annual one-room school workshop in Iowa. Every Fall a different location in Iowa is chosen and people from all over interested in one-room schools gather to learn more about one-room schools and tour area schools. While it’s in Iowa and hosted by Preservation Iowa, interested people from anywhere are welcome to register. The first day is presentation sessions (mostly brief highlights so there is always something different right around the corner). The second day is a tour of area one-room schools.

This year the workshop will be held in Kalona, Iowa at the Kalona Historical Village on Friday, October 10 and Saturday, October 11, 2014. The Kalona Historical Village is a multi-venue museum. They have a restored historic village, a building dedicated to local (especially Amish) history, a building of tractors and cars, and a quilt museum with a national reputation. Topics covered include: Amish one-room schools, Preserving schools through print and visual media, dealing with floods, finding country school antiques, among others.
