2014 Nolan River School
06/01/14
The original Nolan River School operated from 1855 to 1872 and was rebuilt and reopened in 2012.

As of May 2013, Randolph Garner, retired educator has taught 57 full school day classes taking the students back in time. The students are brought out by school bus at 8:30 am and picked up at 2:30 pm. Most of the students are fourth graders from CISD, but we have had most all grade levels from first to college. We have had private schools and home schools attend. While it is not necessary, we encourage the students and their teachers to dress in period outfits. The charge to attend a class is $10 per student with at least 20 students. We can seat up to 32 students.

These school days are not field trips but rather a regular school day as it might have been in 1868. Ray's Arithmetic, Blue Back Spellers and McGuffey Readers are used with slate boards and chalk to write and cipher. No cell phones, computers or electricity are used and a potbelly stove gives heat in the winter. Bring your camera and check this view of the past.

Call 817 648 2815 for more information and the next school days.

There is seating for observation at the back of the class room and we encourage you to stop and take a look at how it was in days gone by.
