LEOMINSTER — The No. 6 Community Center Inc. organization will display historic photos, books and other school-related items at an open house and free tour from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 14, at the No. 6 Schoolhouse, located at the corner of Pleasant and Wachusett streets.
“I have many historical items that were passed down from my mother, a former alumna, that I am excited to share with the community,” said Elaine Perreault, vice president of No. 6 Community Center. “I will also be dressed in period clothing of the 1850s.”
Perreault will also be available to guide visitors throughout the schoolhouse and answer questions, along with other members of the organization.
The No. 6 Community Center, an organization founded in 1949, has been and continues to be responsible for the preservation and maintenance of the No. 6 Schoolhouse. Its mission is to welcome the community to learn and appreciate this one-of-a-kind schoolhouse.
“Stop by to see Leominster’s remaining one-room schoolhouse, it’s original wood burning stove and slate boards, as well as antique desks,” said Perreault. “I am thrilled to have the community learn more about this neighborhood school and how you may become a valuable member.”
