TAMC and the Presque Isle Historical Society will team up again in 2016 to bring alive a piece of years gone by through their quarterly presentations.

Merritt School front 1930

For the first session, planned for Wednesday, March 2, participants will learn more about former one-room schoolhouses in the region.

Photos of the various 22 rural schools from the area will be shown and information will be shared on what a typical day was like, teacher salaries and school budgets, interesting anecdotes and more.  It is an interesting look back to how the youth in the community were educated decades ago.

The historical society's presentation is free and open to the public. It begins at 5:30 p.m, Wednesday, March 2, and will be held in the McCain Conference Room, located on the second floor of TAMC’s East Annex.
