There were nearly thirty one-room schoolhouses in western St. Louis County prior to the 1960s. Karen Fox, local author and Wildwood Historical Society volunteer, captured them in a book titled One-Room Schoolhouses, which offers a detailed look at where they were located, who attended, and how early education functioned in rural Missouri. Ms. Fox will be giving an online presentation to the Wildwood Historic Preservation Commission on this topic on Thursday, August 27th at 6:30 p.m.
The presentation will be broadcast via the Zoom platform and live on the City’s YouTube channel. All are invited to tune in via either format.
