Seneca Schoolhouse Museum

Bring your students to the Seneca Schoolhouse Museum to enjoy the “back in time” experience of a typical school day in 1880 Seneca, Maryland. A carefully researched 19th century school day program is taught by a trained and costumed teacher and gives time for lunch and outdoor games. The program is designed for fourth grade students, but can be tailored to any age. Once your field trip date is set, you will receive an orientation with background materials, as well as, a historically accurate identity for each student.
