Amherst Sandstone Village

Today we went to the Amherst Historical Society and Sandstone Village.  We have been studying the history of Amherst and its earliest inhabitants.    We spent time in the Quigley Museum.  The house built by Mr. Quigley back in the 1820’s.  We walked to the Harris/Dute house and explored a house of long ago.  The students spent some time in the one-room schoolhouse and experienced lessons in spelling and cursive.  We also had time in the St.George Chapel, the Blacksmith Shop, the Ferrier Shop and Machine shop, and the caboose.  It was a great day to see the things the students were learning about.
