Little Red Schoolhouse

The Little Red Schoolhouse museum is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, Wednesdays & Saturdays. The schoolhouse originally known as the Watermill School was built in 1864, and was located on County Road "G" five miles northeast of Tomah, Wisconsin. Watermill was the first school in the area to supply free textbooks, starting in 1912. The school closed in 1965, then purchased by the city museum and moved to its present location at Gillett Park, 1318 Superior Avenue, Tomah, Wisconsin.
