Little Schoolhouse on the Little Wabash

Join the White County Historical Society in this creative, outdoor program at the one-room schoolhouse near the Robinson-Stewart House.

Cathy Shipley Riley and the Carmi Children’s Choir will present an ensemble living history program which will offer a glimpse of life in an 1850s schoolhouse.

The setting: a playground at lunchtime.
The plot: the children will sing a collection of popular tunes, including many Stephen Foster medlies, that reflect the heritage of the families of 1850s White County.

Whether from Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee, or Indiana, families brought with them a slice of Americana to the communities of the Little Wabash.
