ONE-ROOM SCHOOL MUSEUM

        The Hornbine School, built about one hundred and sixty years ago, remains nestled between original stone walls, at its initial location.
         Inside the school, there are old books and pictures on display, an original black board (a board painted black) and original student’s desks from Rehoboth, Dighton and Vermont.
Visitors will view an old teacher’s desk. This was used in the old Palmer River School (District #8) on Mason Street in Rehoboth. It was donated by Mrs. Arthur Hunt.
