Admission and parking for the Green schoolhouse are always free.
Drop by this season for a visit at the historic 19th century one-room Green district schoolhouse, now fully restored by Canterbury Historical Society volunteers. It’s the only one of Canterbury’s old district schoolhouses that’s open to the public. Bring the kids or grandkids for a glimpse of school life on a more intimate scale than nowadays, and without the technology and personal digital devices that can be so distracting in modern life.
Because this charming little schoolhouse was in service well into the 1950s, chances are that during your visit one or more of the friendly Canterbury Historical Society volunteers who greet you may have attended this very school. Who better to show you around and answer your questions?
Regular open hours this season are on the fourth Sunday in June and the second and fourth Sundays in July, August, and September from 2:00 to 4:00 PM. Dates are:
- Sunday June 24
- Sundays July 8 & 22
- Sundays August 12 & 26
- Sundays September 9 & 23
- Plus Saturday, October 13 in conjunction with the Canterbury Historical Society’s annual Old Home Day
