Small Town Travel Log: Seneca Schoolhouse Museum

We made a quick stop at the Seneca Schoolhouse Museum, a one-room schoolhouse built in 1865 of Seneca Sandstone, in Poolesville, MD. The schoolhouse has an interesting history, built on the community that created the structure from donations of both time and money. Modern day field trips allow local fourth graders to experience life in the 1880s. Driving to the schoolhouse, we also admired the large estates of Montevideo, originally built by Martha Washington’s great-grandson, and Rocklands – both located nearby.
