Reed School is open Saturdays and Sundays May 6-October 29 from 10am to 4pm.

Reed School brings to life the public school education of rural students in the 1930s and 40s. The school was built in 1915 in the town of Grant in Clark County and served as a one-room country school through the 1951 school year. The masonry building, with its wood-framed bell tower, replaced a wooden structure that burned in 1914.

The school is typical of the more than 6,000 one-room schools that dotted the landscape of rural Wisconsin in the 1930s. The school provided a first- through eighth-grade education in a single classroom with only one teacher.
