The filmmakers of Country School: One Room - One Nation have been busy launching a companion piece to the Emmy-nominated documentary that took a dramatic look at the lasting impact of America's one-room schools. Their new documentary,The Barn Raisers, will tell the story of barns in the Upper Midwest by examining them through the lens of architecture.
While filming the Prairie Settlement Barn in Ackley, Iowa at the Ackley Heritage Center, the husband-and-wife team took note of the one-room schoolhouse situated at the Silos and Smokestack National Heritage Area partner site. The Clutterville School is a time-piece packed with wonderful artifacts from the country school era and the lessons taught there.
