    Center School Open House

    Saturday June 8 1-4 PM is opening day for the newly renovated Moor’s Charity Indian School (aka Center School). The classroom has been furnished as it was in the 1920’s, and is complemented by a new permanent exhibit detailing education in Columbia over the last 300 years. The Occom Memorial Garden behind the school building is also ready for visitors, so pay us a visit and be among the first to see all we have to offer (for free!)
    For those of you who may not know, the school stands behind the Congregational Church. Enter through the same driveway you would use for the church and town hall.
