The Countryman One Room Schoolhouse, is a representation of a One Room School. It is reminiscent of the first school built in the 1850’s by Fredrick Lykes.
The tour takes you back in time to experience an interactive classroom lesson and provide fun for school groups and family outings. The focus is on early cracker life in the state of Florida.
The children sit at authentic wooden desks, learn how the Pledge of Allegiance came about and how the teacher taught many grades at once, teaching the three R’s, as well as manners and discipline.
Two other programs are available, The Florida Cow Hunter & The Life & Culture of Florida’s Native American Indians. These programs are available by appointment only. Stop by and visit The One-Room Schoolhouse.
The Countryman Family One Room Schoolhouse is one of three museums owned and managed by the Hernando Historical Museum Association, a non-profit, all-volunteer organization. These museums are a link to Brooksville’s rich past. Each museum offers guided tours by knowledgeable docents and walk-in tours during business hours, but large groups and/or school fieldtrips are available by appointment ONLY.
The price for each Museum is $5.00 for Adults and $2.00 for Children for ages 6-12years old.
