Homesteading legacy: New book celebrates Montana’s one-room schoolhouses

One-room schoolhouses, one of the last testimonies to Montana’s homesteading
history and spirit, are slowly crumbling back into the soil.

With them go the memories and voices of those who spent much of
their childhood within those walls.

Over the past three years, author and photographer Charlotte Caldwell has
searched out these schools and those who attended them, and written a
beautifully photographed and documented book,
“Visions and Voices: Montana’s One-Room Schoolhouses.”

She will share her photos of the schools and their stories in a talk at the
Montana Historical Society, 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17.



I spent the first three years of school in a two-room school, Erickson School, Pondera County.

1. My mother went to one of those one room schoolhouses near Columbia Falls

She only got a 9th grade education but she was such a wise woman. I miss her.
