The Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum is hosting an All You Can Eat Pancake Breakfast, Sunday, March 13, from 7 a.m. to noon at the St. Benedict Catholic church dining hall.
The museum is raising funds to “Move the Schoolhouse” onto the grounds of the museum. The one-room schoolhouse – once called the Pot Hollow School – was built in 1915, moved to Burr Oak in 1960 to be used as additional classroom space, restored in 1994 for use as an artist’s studio, and was recently donated to the Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum.
Once funds are raised to build a foundation and relocate the building to museum property, visitors will be able to enjoy it during their tours and students can experience a school day in pioneer times.
On Thursday, March 3, the museum is partnering with Decorah Pizza Hut to raise funds for the “Move the Schoolhouse” campaign. Use code 1118 on all orders.
