Zimmerman School

17901 Carter Road
Bowling Green, OH  43402

 

In post-Civil War America one-room schoolhouses played an important role in educating the young.  In these schools children were taught arithmetic, reading, spelling and writing.  Situated in independent local school districts, they promoted a democratic ethic and strong American community life.

The Zimmerman School of today is representative of its life from 1892 through 1923.  It is the third school on this site.  A fire took the first wooden school.  The second was moved to make room for the bigger brick building.

The Zimmerman school is open by appointment for programming purposes.  Click here to learn more about programs offered by The Wood County Park District.

"Just got back from the fun fest and had a wonderful time with my twin 4 year-olds. Games, candy, cider, smores and wagon ride were all wonderful. Thanks so much for a fun, free family event in BG."
