A reunion was held Sunday in Mercer County for those who attended one-room schools.

It was the one-room county-wide reunion at the Caldwell School Museum.

People had the chance to relive what it was like to go at a one-room school. Old books, desks and pictures still fill the school.

Organizers said this gives former one-room school students a chance to talk about their experience and share what it was like with those who did not go to a one-room school.

“It’s wonderful, we have so many good memories. Whenever someone comes who hasn’t been here before they bring up some new topics that we have not thought of for years. Most of the one room schools around here are almost like families. Everyone seems to get along great and reminisce,” said former one-room school student Rose Marie Michal.

The museum is open every Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. until Labor Day.
