Rekindle your memories of school days in the Conneaut Lake area and learn about education in the years passed by visiting the museum school exhibit.

Starting with photos of the first school buildings in Conneaut Lake, the exhibit traces the history of the various schools, from what was called “The Academy” to Center School, North Shenango Township, the Conneaut Lake, Greenwood schools and more.

But the exhibit is more than photos. As you step into the “classroom”, you’ll feel immersed in the past with the mannequin teacher standing before a blackboard, surrounded by a globe, books, alphabet on the wall and a desk, complete with an inkwell from yesteryear.

In addition, we have many class photos, where you may be able to help us identify some of the students.

A map shows the location of many of the one room schoolhouses in the area, and a display case holds many treasures, including a vintage Peanuts metal lunch box.

And did you ever wish you could look up your former classmates again? Visit our exhibit and you can do just that.  We have a collection of yearbooks from the early 1900s to 2020.

In addition to the items in the exhibit, we have much more information related to schools in our archives.
