Little White Schoolhouse reopens in a ‘tasteful’ way

Okay, technically you can’t actually eat them, but they are made of all edible ingredients—”they” are models of the Little White Schoolhouse, 303 Blackburn St. in Ripon. Known as “The birthplace of the Republican Party,” the little building and museum was closed for extensive renovations and repairs. The Little White Schoolhouse will reopen its doors to the public on Saturday, May 12.

In recognition of the grand re-opening, local residents created models of the schoolhouse, using only edible ingredients as the building materials. The edible schoolhouses will be on display in conjunction with a pictorial exhibit about the restoration.

The Little White Schoolhouse will be officially welcomed back into Wisconsin tourism in a special ceremony at 11 a.m. Local musicians will perform the music of the 1850s while the public enjoys an old-fashioned ice cream social. Admission is $1 for adults and free for children 12 and younger. The Little White Schoolhouse is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Memorial Day through Labor Day.

If you want to see a bit of history, this is a nice place to check out.  Although, I think I’ll pass on the ‘model’.  If I can’t eat it, I don’t want it.  🙂
