Peaceful place to stretch your legs

The school was closed the day I stopped, still an interesting building. The bridge is well constructed and in very good shape. Pleasant view and walk.

We stopped and looked at this site and took some pictures. The covered bridge was pretty cool and had an interesting history.

Stopped by schoolhouse and was disappointed to find we couldn't actually go inside. You can only look in the windows. Not very exciting and took all of 5 minutes. I wouldn't make a special trip just for this.

Old Schoolhouse along Route 11 as you approach this town with its picturesque waterfalls along the Black River. This is not a touristy town. Rather it is representative of Vermont's hard working, blue collar population and it's past heyday as Precision Valley when it produced all sorts of precision instruments. Most of these businesses have gone to Asia but the... More

The school house and bridge where not what I expected. They were both smaller than expected and both near a newer housing area, so the bridge is left looking out of place. The school house was closed the day I visited; therefore, we were only able to look through the windows. I was able to capture some touristy pictures outside... More

This little schoolhouse is must see on your travels to Springfield. 1st and foremost it is a throwback to a simpler time when there was 1 room schoolhouses. Desks are still there along with books, pencils, maps, etc. There is also lots of information about the actual schoolhouse on the inside and out. The covered bridge and the grounds surrounding...

We were in Springfield for 2 days but the schoolhouse wasn't open for visitors while we were there. There is a covered bridge beside the schoolhouse that has been moved to that location - looks a little strange since there is no water under it.

I drove a bit out of my way to see this historic schoolhouse. By the time I arrived, it was closed. Fortunately, I was able to get a peek inside through the windows. It was a bit disappointing to realize that the schoolhouse had been moved to its current location along a busy roadway from its original site as well... More
