Little red schoolhouse found while filming in Wisconsin.
The Emmy® nominated documentary Country School: One Room - One Nation, by filmmakers Kelly and Tammy Rundle of Fourth Wall Films, will be featured in a special screening event at the River Falls Public Library, 140 Union Street, River Falls, Wisconsin on Thursday, June 23 at 7:00 p.m. Admission is free to the public.
The library will be opening a gallery exhibit, "“All in One Room: The Old County Schools”, which will be available to explore from June 4th through July 1st, 2016. The screening of the documentary will be a special part of the exhibit paying tribute to early education and the one-room school house.
