Killingworth Historical Society proudly unveils new logo
The Historical Society is pleased to present its new logo; a depiction of the Union District Schoolhouse, aka 'The Little Green Schoolhouse.'
In the nineteenth century, Killingworth had eight school districts each with its own one room schoolhouse: Center, Southwest, Chestnut Hill, Union, Lane, Pine Orchard, Stone House, Black Rock. The oldest is the Union District School located on Roast Meat Hill Road just south of Route 80. It was built in 1800 and painted green, so that it is known as the “Little Green Schoolhouse.”
The Historical Society purchased the Union District Schoolhouse in 1980 and restored the school, and its accompanying outhouse, to their original condition. In recent years, the Killingworth and Haddam historical societies have opened the property to local elementary school students to experience what it was like to attend a one-room school in the 1800s.
