Carver County students get a glimpse of pioneer life
CARVER COUNTY, MN – At an 1872 one-room school house next to Chaska Elementary School, students from Jonathan Elementary School in Chaska had a hands-on history lesson June 1, the Chaska Herald reported.
The students, wearing period-appropriate clothing and assigned pioneer characters to portray, learned how students studied, worked and played in 1800s-era Carver County.
The 1872 school house was built in what was then Chanhassen Township, and replaced the first school erected in Carver County in 1855. It is used by teachers at various elementary schools to give their students a glimpse of pioneer life.
