In the spirit of the new school year, our employees helped the Centre County Historical Society’s Boogersburg School prepare for its annual back-to-school Open House. We were happy to contribute to the school’s efforts in sharing their rich, local history with the rest of the community!
The Boogersburg School was built by Centre Furnace ironmaster and farmer Moses Thompson back in the 18th century. From 1877–1952, the one-room school house was home to first through eighth graders. Today, the school is a beloved tourism spot for local elementary schools. Restored back to its original charm, children from around the area visit the museum to experience what a typical school day was like back in the late 19th century.
We are extremely grateful to both the Strubles, the current owners of the school, and the Centre County Historical Society for their continuous efforts to share the school’s rich history with the community each year!
