The Quaker School House

Peter Lossing valued education and he taught school in his own house during the early settlement around Norwich. William Hulet, step-son of Peter Lossing, was the first teacher in the township;  school was opened in the fall of 1812 in a small log house on the bank of the Otter. Attendance was 15.
The school house was taken down due to safety issues. The construction was very rudimentary and a total rebuild would have been needed to have a building up to code. We are looking into new uses for the pad the school house stood on and ways to present the school experience, possibly in one of the barn rooms.
