Bring Back the Dunce Cap


Historic White Pine Village
1687 S. Lakeshore Dr.
Ludington, MI 49431

Marchido School is a typical one-room country school house restored to the original condition and decor. Built in 1890, it was used until 1956. Now children from many Western Michigan schools come and attend the One Room School Experience using slates, McGuffey's reader and rules from 100 years ago.

Dear Peter,

This was a good find in western Mich. The school was esp. interesting, complete with a 44-star flag, dunce cap & portrait poster of "Our 22 Presidents."
