With hopes of preserving the early educaiton and local history of the town of Cicero, the Cicero Historical Society will begin summer hours Saturday July 3.
Marcia McGill and Steve Muscarella will present a special program, "Trunks from the Past," during the opening day. Dressed in period attire, they will share programs about early education in America.
The programs will be as follows: from 1 to 2 p.m. education before American Independence; from 2 to 3 p.m. Common School (Era of One-room Schools); and from 3 to 4 p.m. Early 20th Century Education. Each individual program will be followed by a tour of the school building constructed in 1854.
The Stone Arabia School House, the School House Museum and the 210-year-old Log House will be open for public viewing from 1 to 4 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday in July and August. We are located at 6453 Route. 31 just east of the South Bay Road and Route 31 intersection.
Come and hear McGill and Muscarella's stories of "the good old school days" in Cicero and enjoy an afternoon as you learn a bit of local and American history. Bring your family and friends for a free visit and take a trip back in time right in your own neighborhood. Cookies and lemonade will be served.
