About

Those who appreciate history will enjoy working at the Graham Chapel Schoolhouse. The Schoolhouse is over a century old and was originally located in the nearby Peoria area. Shortly after the Park opened, it was moved here for the enjoyment and education of Park guests.

The Schoolhouse cannot be open to guests unless there is a volunteer present, so it is important to have volunteers staff theis popular attraction. The furniture and accessories are original to the structure or are antiques from the same time period. There is a rich history behind the Schoolhouse that volunteers can help share with guests.

Volunteers are welcome, but certianly not required, to dress in time-period clothing and bring an "old fashioned" hobby with them (knitting, crocheting, quilting, etc).
