Celebrating the 200th Anniversary
of the One-Room Schoolhouse, 1822-2022

The 1822 Schoolhouse and two of the houses on the Tour, the Griffing Homestead and the
Capt. Henry Gardiner House, are associated with Schoolmistress Miss Lizabeth Griffing, who
was a student at the Schoolhouse as a child and taught there for a year in 1868, when she was 18. Lizabeth kept a diary, often writing no more than three or four lines each day. Taken together,
her entries offer an authentic glimpse of daily life in the mid-19th century, when the
village was a small, close-knit farming community.
