To step into a little piece of history, head towards the historic district of League City, where you will find this delightful museum. This really is a special place. It is somewhere that sees the importance of preserving the past to show current generations how different things used to be. This attraction is a must see for visitors. There is an old school house which has a covered seating area with old benches and a chalkboard where the children used to be taught their daily lessons.

This attraction has been well-maintained and includes information available about the era in which this attraction was fully functional. There is an authentic one-room school house where a costumed lady helps you become a student in 1898. Learn to write with a real ink pen, pump water from a well, and play with a hoop and stick at recess. The Barn Museum houses historical treasures and there is a small gift shop where you can buy something to remember your visit.
