Get Schooled at the 2016 GHC Summer Ramble

The Groton History Center invites you and your children to our much anticipated Annual Summer Ramble. This year we invite you to walk through Groton’s historic one-room schoolhouses on July 17, 2016, from 2 pm to 5 pm. We have two such Groton schoolhouses preserved today, one located on Sandy Pond Road in Ayer (formerly Groton) and one on Chicopee Row in Groton.

The Chicopee Row Schoolhouse and its outhouse will be open from 3 -5 pm. Members of the Sawtell (Chicopee Row) Schoolhouse will be there to greet and inform visitors about the schoolhouse experience. The school is found on the corner of Chicopee Road and Sawtell Dr. Parking will be available along the sidewalk side of Sawtell Dr.

Please join us for this exciting and informative Ramble. Refreshments will be served. This program is possible thanks to the Sandy Pond Schoolhouse Association, the Chicopee Row Schoolhouse Association and a generous grant from the Groton Commissioners of Trust Funds. Donations to support the work of the Groton Historical Society at The Groton History Center will be gratefully accepted. Please note there are no bathrooms at these venues.
