Horbine School Museum


The Hornbine School Museum will be open to the public July 9th and 23rd. We are open from 2 – 4 P.M. on each OPEN HOUSE SUNDAY. We are located at 144 Hornbine Road in Rehoboth, MA

Recently we had Mark Pelletier visit us during an OPEN HOUSE SUNDAY. He brought some rare photographs of the school after it had been sand blasted in 1975 or 1976. Mark and his friends, Dan Hersey and Doug Crawford, ran the “Bear Brothers Painting” company at the time. Mark told us how Malvina Medeiros, an active member of the Hornbine Association, asked him if he and his friends wanted to paint the building. Mark contacted the Cupinol Paint Company and persuaded them to donate the materials. They donated 40 gallons and paid for the shipping! Mark said he and his friends did some light sanding and then set the old nails. They applied two coats of clear preservative stain and two coats of solid body white based stain to finish the job.
