October 3 – Staff of the Madison County Historical Museum have just installed a new exhibit at the Madison County Courthouse on the history of Madison County schools. The exhibit is located in a large display case in the Courthouse rotunda and in a nearby flat case. Visitors will learn what it was like to attend Madison County schools in the past, from kindergarten to Common School graduation to high school. Highlights include an easel, a school bell, and photos of one-room schoolhouses throughout the county. If you plan to go, you may want to leave your cell phone behind, otherwise you’ll need to get a locker (free) since cell phones are not permitted in the courthouse. Photos courtesy of Lynn Engelman.
