The Knott's School House

I'm posting a copy of the new School House brochure that was recreated in 2008. The old one was posted on the Vintage Disneyland Tickets blog yesterday. The new one is basically the same just with some new art and photos. The School House was brought to Knott's Berry Farm in 1952.

On June 18, 1960 the Daughters of the American Revolution presented Walter Knott with a bronze plaque at a dedication ceremony honoring the one room School house. The inscribtion on the plaque reads "In recognition of the value to our Nation of the eduacation provided by the one room school house. This plaque is placed on an original one built in 1879, near beloit, Kansas. Dedicated by Hannah Bushrod Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution,June 1940." Below are the program from the dedication ceremony and flyer about the ceremony from about a month later.
