School takes visitors way back
SYCAMORE – While visiting the old North Grove School on Brickville Road, Erin Cook said she appreciates the glimpse of history offered by the one-room schoolhouse that provides insight into how children were taught decades ago.
And her 6-year-old daughter, Zoë, was “amazed that kids came outside to go to the bathroom,” Cook said Sunday with a laugh.
During this past weekend’s annual open house, tours of the school were offered and old-fashioned games were played. Penny candy, baked goods, wooden nickels and corn-husk dolls were available for purchase. Root beer floats were popular Sunday amid the afternoon heat.
