School life on Cape Cod in the 1800's is celebrated and pupils join in the classroom activities to experience first-hand what is was like so many years ago when one-room schools taught local children usually up to the eighth grade. While visiting, explore the rich maritime history of our town that produced many clipper ships that sailed the oceans of the world bringing commerce to far away harbors. Find out about many of the local deep water sea captains who risked their lives in this profession.
