Little Schoolhouse in the Mountains
I don’t mind admitting I’ve been out of elementary school a while. But I will get a tad huffy if you think this log cabin is where I spent my formative years. That said, there may be a few folks still living who attended the Little Greenbrier schoolhouse because it was used until 1936. And it’s still standing today where it was built back in 1882, now part of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. What if today’s kids had to attend this school? What if today’s teachers had a classroom of students ranging in age from 6 to 14? A rich environment might be a nice way of describing it.
Now it’s your turn to share. Have you visited the Little Greenbrier schoolhouse? Do you know anyone who attended a one-room school or taught in one?
