Classical Conversations of Sabetha organized a field trip for students to enjoy a historical learning environment to complement a year studying American history. Brown County Historical Society in Hiawatha hosts this one-room classroom experience in a replica of a 1910 schoolhouse restored from the Grand Prairie Rural School.

The students learned under teacher Miss Benson and one lucky student got to sit in the same desk which she used in her childhood. The Brown County Historical Society added to the living history experience with early 1900s apparel, lunch pails, slates, era-appropriate text books, and a copybook to take home as a souvenir. A favorite part of the day was recess, in which the students learned the 19th century ball game Annie-Annie Over.
