Family enjoys “The Little Red Schoolhouse” tour

On a warm and sunny afternoon, Talia, 8 and Roxanne, 4, along with their mom Amanda Calcagno enjoyed a personal tour of “The Little Red Schoolhouse” (Rounds School), courtesy of Rockford Rotarian Rick Ehinger, who was doing some “tidying up” of this historic local treasure. The schoolhouse has been at its present location since 1960, when the Rotary Club moved it from its original home near 11 Mile Road and Courtland Drive.

The Little Red Schoolhouse will be open for tours the second weekend of Harvest Fest, Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 2-3, from 1 to 3 p.m. This is one of many ongoing Rotary projects for the community. Visit their website at rockfordmirotary.org.
