Come feel the passion for the legendary schools of yore! In this three-session course (there will be 2 more in the fall), scholars will be introduced to several one-room and larger country schools of the North Country. Session A will be at the Silas Wright House this spring. Sessions B and C will be held in the fall and will include a field trip.

Judy Liscum, a Canton native, attended grades K-8 at the Canton Grammar School. In 1963, she accepted a 6th grade teaching position at this same school and taught alongside several former one-room school teachers. Most of these ladies had joined the Grammar School staff due to centralization. Following retirement from Canton Central, Judy worked as a supervisor of student teachers for twelve years in the Education Department at SLU. Currently, she is the schoolmarm at the St. Lawrence Power and Equipment Museum in Madrid. She is a local history author, and has written, and self-published, four nonfiction books.
