Tucker Mountain School Holds First Open House of 2022

Sunday, June 12, from 1 to 3 PM

A rare photo from 1887 captures children playing baseball on the road in front of the Tucker Mountain Schoolhouse in East Andover. In 2010, many folks from Andover came together to create a DVD, Early Days of Education in New England: A Re-enactment of a Day at the Tucker Mountain School, based on careful research into this photo. The video is on YouTube, and you can visit the Tucker Mountain Schoolhouse on the second Sunday of the month, June through October.

The Andover Historical Society announces the first open house for the 2022 season at the Tucker Mountain Schoolhouse.

Built in 1837, and in its original condition, the schoolhouse will be open to the public on Sunday, June 12, between 1 and 3 PM.

Period school books, slates, inkwells, and other artifacts will be on display. For more information or to arrange for a visit at another time, please contact Donna Baker-Hartwell at 603 381-5586 or DonnaBH@nulltds.net.

There will be an open house each month from June through October on the second Sunday.
