  • About this museum:
    The Mt. Zion One Room School House, located at Furnace Town Living Heritage Village, was built in 1869 near Whiton and used as a school until 1931.  It stood empty until Dr. Paul Cooper, Superintendent of Schools, had the building moved to Snow Hill.  It was opened to the public in 1964 and has since demonstrated to students and visitors how their forebears were taught in the days of one room schools.
     
    Donations of 19th century texts an furnishings make a visit to the school a leap back in time.  McGuffy readers, quill pens, inkwells, slates and a water bucket are in place just as if the students had been dismissed yesterday.
