Hornbine School Museum’s Open House Season


We have been unable to have school classes visit the school for the past three years because of the unpredictability of the Corvid Virus. However, we were able to arrange for three classes to visit for the day this June. The public is invited to visit any of our Open House Sundays. We may be offering children a chance, for a nominal fee, on selected days in August and September, to attend the school for a day. The day’s program will include a host of old-fashioned activities and learning opportunities. Wearing historic clothing will be encouraged. Class sizes will be limited. Look for more information on our Facebook Page “Hornbine School Museum” or in the August edition of the Reporter.

Rehoboth’s Hornbine School Museum will be open to the public between 2PM and 4PM on the 2nd and 4th Sundays in July, August and September. We are celebrating Frances Magan Jones’ 100th birthday this season by displaying pictures of her involvement with the school. The Schoolhouse is located at the corner of Hornbine and Baker Roads in south-eastern Rehoboth. We hope to see you one of these dates.

A Personal Note by Dave Downs
I was hired during May of 1972 to teach 3rd grade at the North Rehoboth School. Mrs. Doris Johnson, who was the 4th grade Teaching Principal at the school, invited me to accompany her class on a field trip to the Hornbine School. That field trip was on June 14, 1972 – Flag Day. As it turned out, that was the first full day experience I had in Rehoboth. This June 14th was the 50th anniversary of that day.
