Lake Winnipesaukee Museum hosting program on one-room schoolhouses

LACONIA — Lake Winnipesaukee Museum in Weirs Beach is hosting a lecture, "New Hampshire One-Room Rural Schools, The Romance and the Reality," featuring Steve Taylor on Wednesday, July 9, at 7 p.m.

Taylor will talk about the hundreds of one-room schools that dotted the landscape of New Hampshire a century ago and were the backbone of primary education for generations of children. Revered in literature and lore, they actually were beset with problems, some of which are little changed today.

The greatest issue was financing the local school and the vast differences between taxing districts in their ability to support education. Other concerns included teacher preparation and quality, curriculum, discipline, student achievement and community involvement in the educational process. In his presentation Taylor will explore the lasting legacies of the one-room school and how they echo today.

An independent scholar, farmer, journalist and longtime public official, Taylor operates a dairy and maple farm in Meriden Village, and served for a quarter century as the state's Commissioner of Agriculture. He has been a newspaper reporter and editor. He was also the first executive director of the New Hampshire Humanities Council and is a lifelong student the state's rural culture.

This event is free and is made possible by a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council. Lake Winnipesaukee Museum is located on Route 3 in Laconia, next to Funspot. Please call 366-5950 to RSVP.
