This original schoolhouse was built on its present site circa 1868 and opened for children, grades 1 - 7, for families who lived in the Port Republic area of Calvert County, Maryland. It remained in continuous use until the consolidation of schools in 1932, at which time it was closed.
The schoolhouse suffered the ravages of time until 1976 when it was restored by the Calvert County Retired Teachers Association as a bicentennial project.
Today groups of school children spend the day recreating a one-room school experience, including a walk through the woods to school and lessons taught as they would have been at the turn of the 20th century.
