Cape Elizabeth Historical Preservation Society Presents: Cape’s Wandering Schoolhouses (And the One that Stayed Put)

Tuesday, February 13 -- 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Ever heard of the Ridgeway Schoolhouse? Do you know where it was located? At the time of separation from South Portland in 1898, Cape Elizabeth had four one-room schoolhouses: Bowery Beach, Pond Cove, Spurwink and Ridgeway. Three of the four shuffled around to various sites throughout the town’s history. One stayed put (that is, it remains at its original location today). Together these one-room centers of learning educated generations of Cape Elizabeth children. Many residents today can still recall personal schoolhouse experiences or can retell stories passed down over the years from their ancestors. We invite you to join TML and CEHPS for this informative presentation and to bring your stories to share as well! The evening will also include an excellent visual history of Bowery Beach Schoolhouse created for CEHPS by Zoe Burgard, Cape High School Class of 2024. This program will take place in the library’s Community Room. All are welcome!
