The tornado that ripped through Eagle, Wisconsin on June 21, 2010, and severely damaged sites at Old World Wisconsin, spared the Raspberry one-room school that will be featured in the Wisconsin portion of Country School: One Room - One Nation.
About 20 houses in Eagle were destroyed and Old World Wisconsin estimates they lost 2,500 trees, damage to 2 buildings and 2 buildings destroyed. No people or animals were injured or killed at Old World Wisconsin. Only minor injuries were reported elsewhere.
We visited the site in May 2010 where we documented the log cabin-style one-room school and interviewed a historic site interpreter.
Old World Wisconsin is set to reopen on July 24, 2010.
