Features

Millrock School is a one-room schoolhouse that sites on a 1-acre historic site.  The school is filled with items that are common of its time period; desks, chairs, books, lunch pails, an antique Victrola, wood burning stove, and more.  There are even two outhouses on site!

If your class or group is interested in visiting this schoolhouse, contact the Jackson County Conservation environmental education staff to set up a time and date.  The Jackson County Retired Teachers have volunteered their time in giving groups a feel for what it was like to go to a one-room school.
