1888 Bohemian Schoolhouse

1888 Bohemian Schoolhouse

Building Information

Building Information: 
The one-room 1888 Bohemian Schoolhouse taught Bohemian language and culture on the weekends. Students of diverse ages attended classes; seen by desks that range from small in the front to large in the back. The Junior League of Racine adopted the restoration of the Schoolhouse in 1974 and completed the restoration, and installation of the outhouses, in 1975. The interior is equipped with original (where possible) and authenticated duplicates of objects used in schoolhouses of that period. Since then, the building has been restored and repaired multiple times thanks to the Wisconsin Conservation Corps and Racine County Conservation League.

Visitor Experience

Visitor Experience: 
The 1888 Bohemian Schoolhouse is a fascinating immersion experience that transports visitors back in time. Visitors will not only be able to see what a one-room schoolhouse was like in the late 1880s, but they will be able to experience it firsthand! Sit in the desks, meant for children of all different ages, try your hand at a reading lesson with McGuffy Readers, play games like "ante-over-ante," and more. This is a stop you wont want to miss!
