Museum features Schools in Clinton County

June 9, 2015

colony1thDear Old Golden Rule Days

Do your thoughts ever wander back to your early school days?

If you lived in the country, you, your parents or grandparents may have attended a one room school house similar to the one above, showing the old outhouse, and the wood pile which was the source of heat that kept you warm in the winter, if your seat was close enough to that old pot belly stove.


We all have priceless memories of those school days, the friends we had, and that special teacher who stimulated our young minds. You can re-kindle those old memories by visiting the Museum in 2015. Our main exhibit will focus on early Clinton County schools. Share your memories, and your photos with our staff. We love talking about the good old days.

You may also be interested in our Military Exhibit and Renovated Calendar Hall on the second floor. Also, be sure to visit the General Store and Carriage House located behind the Museum. Volunteers work hard to provide a meaningful experience to guests.

If you haven’t visited the Museum complex recently, you will be pleasantly surprised by all that Clinton County Historical Society’s Paine-Gilliam-Scott House Museum Complex has to offer.

    It was located near what is now Friendship Park in Rochester Colony. The Colony is located just west of the intersection of E. Colony and Harmon Roads north of St. Johns.

    Does anyone have a photo of Price School in Victor Township?? If so, I would love to receive a copy via e-mail. Thank you!

    I am looking for the location of an abandoned schoolhouse near Eagle (I don’t know it’s name – I’ve just seen a picture of it – comment states “edge of town”). The only one-room school I have found is a former red schoolhouse (north side of road) east of Eagle on Grand River. Last I knew that building was for sale. Any help in locating the abandoned schoolhouse at the edge of town would be appreciated.
