Old Rock Schoolhouse 01

The Old Rock Schoolhouse

This is a one-room school house used from 1835 to 1899 and was one of 20 school districts in the Town of Bristol at that time. It is located on Rock Schoolhouse Road accessible off the Upper Round Pond Road from either Route 130 at Bristol Mills or Route 32 just south of Round Pond Village. On summer Sunday and Wednesday afternoons, volunteer docents dress in period costume and open the schoolhouse for tours. Inside, visitors find actual textbooks used by 19th century students and can attend a “class” given by a docent, recording their answers on their personal slates. Restrooms are available.
