School House #18 Open House

From 1887-1964, Public School Number 18 stands as a sentinel to schooling as it used to be. Immediately following the American Civil War, the Commonwealth of Virginia dedicated itself to the concept of free public education. Small community schools, such as Number 18, dotted Fauquier County.

Visit the old school and step back in history and enjoy a lively guided tour and discussion by volunteer Docents Lee and Vicky as they bring the school alive with pictures and artifacts of the way it once was decades ago. During the Spring, Summer and Fall months, the grounds come to life with beautiful gardens meticulously maintained by the Fauquier Master Gardeners who are part of the Fauquier County Extension Office.

For more information, please call 540-422-8570.
