Inside Wilson-Blair School

Welcome to Wilson-Blair School & Museum

Just hang your hat and come with us on a tour of the school

The view as you walk into the classroom. You feel like you are stepping back in time.
You find yourself wondering where the students and teacher are.

Looking towards the back of the school room you see many photos of various
people who at one time lived in the area and also the door leading to the museum

Angela Blair sits at the desk "grading papers"
Let her know when you are coming and she will give you a tour of the little schoolhouse

Here you see the old school bell setting atop the antique piano, a coal oil lamp setting on the teacher 's desk. A water bucket and dipper with the little personal drinking cups await the thirsty children coming in from recess and the little books on the desks are waiting to be read

A closer view of the water bucket and dipper. Under the table sits
a wash basin for cleaning up little hands dirty from playing outside

Closer view of a desk with a spelling book

Ann Kimmel from near by Princeton, Ky. came to visit Anglia Blair to talk about a project
they may do together. A portrait of abolitionist, Frederick Douglass, hangs in the background

The Warm Morning Stove would feel so good on a frosty morning

The TV is used for showing historical films and documentaries

A collection of African American dolls sits in the antique cabinet
