Lehigh Township Historical Society celebrates its former one and two room schools!
Once Around the Township
St. Paul's Schoolhouse, our restored school adjacent to St. Paul's UCC of Indianland, is one of more than 17 former one or two room schools that once served residents of Lehigh Township. This year we are planning a special event, open to the public, along with our annual Open House of St. Paul's School on September 23. A narrated bus tour "Once Around the Township" will be a drive-by of all of the buildings known to be former schools as well as the "new" Lehigh Elementary school. The tour will include the history and stories about each school. Reservations/tickets must be paid in advance and are required for the tour to be held on Saturday, September 23rd. The cost of the tour is $10 per person age 6 and up; children under 6 will be $5 each. Seats will be filled on a first-come basis. Two trips are planned, at 11:00 am and 12:30 pm. If demand is high, we will put names on a waiting list and look into the possibility of an additional trip at 2:00 pm. A tour ticket will include lunch of a hot dog, chips and water. Reservation/Ticket sales will begin on May 7th and will be available during our Open House dates all summer. There is no admission fee for a visit to St. Paul's Schoolhouse without the bus tour. Hot dogs and water will be for sale in the church social hall to anyone visiting the school but not taking the bus tour. Make your reservations early! The deadline for reservations will be September 3rd unless we sell out sooner.
