Alumni & Visitors Open House
Saturday October 28, 2017 * 10 am – 1 pm

2017 marks the Forestdale School’s  ** 140th Anniversary Year!

The North Smithfield Heritage Association is hosting a “Little Red Schoolhouse” Alumni Open House.  On Saturday October 28, 2017 our Forestdale Schoolhouse will be open from 10 am – 1 pm. for visitors and alumni of the Forestdale School and all our town schools, to step back in time.

All are welcome to come learn history of this town landmark, see class photos from years past, sit at their old desk, and hopefully reconnect with past classmates.  Our “Pickets of Memories” fence allowed us to find many past alumni of our school. We are excited to get together and share stories of what it was like to go to a one-room school. 

The Forestdale Schoolhouse was built in 1877, taught students in grades 1- 8 and in 1958 was used for kindergarten classes until 1973.  This year, the school is celebrating 140 years.  

The NSHA would like to keep a listing of alumni that plan to attend.  Visit the NS Heritage Association webpage under town links on the Town of NS website.  We will be happy to add your name for others to see.

Contact Donna Kaehler at 762-2542 for additional information.
