Seneca Schoolhouse Museum

At the Seneca Schoolhouse Museum, visitors will enjoy the “back in time” experience of a typical school day in 1880 Seneca, Maryland. Before 1865, Seneca children were homeschooled by parents or tutors, or received no formal education. In 1865, just as the Civil War was ending, Mr. Upton Darby, a farmer and miller collected subscriptions from his neighbors to start the one-room school.

FUN FACTS

Two hundred thousand Civil War soldiers were boys no older than 16, and an estimated 300 women were brave enough to disguise themselves as men and fight in the war. The average soldier weighed only 145 pounds due to poor diet, long marches, disease, and tough living, and earned between $13-$16 per month. Reading about these facts is interesting, but actually living them makes the information come alive. Living History Centers can allow students to experience how people lived during important historical eras, including enlisting as a soldier during the Civil War.
