Back to School Night Night 1861 At Columbia State Park

Columbia, CA... Columbia State Historic Park (SHP) announced the annual Back to School 1861 event will be Saturday, September 18, 2021, from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. Visitors are invited for a look inside the Old Columbia Schoolhouse. This event is free and open to the public. The evening of fun and educational opportunities includes 1861 school lessons every half hour, old-fashioned toys and dress up clothes, homemade ice cream, and a sing-along on the steps of the schoolhouse. Donations made during this event go to the non-profit organization Friends of Columbia State Historic Park, which provides funding for unique educational opportunities at Columbia SHP. 





     What:   Back to School 1861

     When:  September 18, 2021, 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. 

     Where: Old schoolhouse, Columbia State Historic Park

     Cost:    Free

Columbia’s schoolhouse is the oldest two-story brick schoolhouse in the state. In 1861, the doors first opened to students to serve the educational needs of the growing families in the mining town. The schoolhouse closed in 1937 when the new Columbia School on Parrotts Ferry Road opened.

When the old Columbia schoolhouse became a part of the California State Park System in 1945, the opportunity to bring the condemned relic back to life began. In the 1950s, the California Teachers Association began a fundraising drive for restoration. Thousands of schoolchildren throughout the state contributed their pennies to raise the $60,000 needed for the restoration. The California State Park System and ongoing fund-raising efforts brought unique educational opportunities back to life. Thousands of students throughout the year visit the schoolhouse and participate in living history programs led by costumed docents. Back to School 1861 is a special event where the old schoolhouse doors are open for the public to enjoy.

To my great regret, I graduated from school a long time ago, but I always remember these wonderful moments with great warmth. Now my son is preparing to go to first grade and I would like to remind you of the holiday that takes place on July 4th. There is an article https://speechblubs.com/blog/july-4th-preschool-crafts/ with which you can find out about all the play activities for preschoolers and toddlers. This is one of the most exciting holidays for both adults and young people, so you shouldn't miss it.
