The Friends of Cedar Hill Schoolhouse are delighted to invite you to their annual Strawberry Social, in the historic one-room schoolhouse.
In operation until the 1960s, the heritage building is 140 years old this year, and still retains its original character and features such as the teacher’s desk and slate blackboards. The delicious menu includes local strawberries, whipped cream or ice cream, cake (including gluten-free option) and beverages. All proceeds go towards preservation of this wonderful heritage structure. Cost: $6
