It's the Log School's 100th Anniversary!
Join Us for the 100-year Centennial Celebration of the Historic Black Forest Log School
Saturday, September 10th and Sunday, September 11th
Black Forest Community Center and Log School Park, 12530 Black Forest Road
The Black Forest Log School is a log building listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is the only surviving example of the many log schools that once existed in the area. It was built by the Black Forest community in 1922 on donated land, using donated logs, labor, and equipment.
The Friends of the Black Forest Log School, in partnership with the Black Forest Community Club, are excited to announce the 100-year Centennial Celebration of the historic Black Forest Log School on Saturday and Sunday, September 10th and 11th at the Black Forest Community Center and Log School Park. The 100th Anniversary Centennial Celebration is a fun event to celebrate the heritage of the Log School and to raise funds to help maintain the historic building in the heart of the Black Forest community.
The Centennial Celebration begins on Saturday, September 10th with tours of the historic schoolhouse, a Quilt Show Fundraiser in the Community Center, and children’s games in the Log School Park. The children’s games will feature popular games from the 1920’s and there will also be discounted ice cream from Rizuto’s Ice Cream Truck.
