|Service and Access Details|
|Description (Service)||This site is owned by the City of Niagara Falls, and run by the Recreation & Culture Department.
This one-room schoolhouse provides the setting in which to experience the charm of early life in the area known as Willoughby. Visitors can admire former report cards and photographs and observe the markings on the floor where the desks were bolted down. Early life is shown through farming tools and family heirlooms.
Located a short distance from the site of the Battle of Chippawa (5 July 1814), the Willoughby Historical Museum also provides multiple displays explaining the intricacies and experiences of different peoples at this battle and throughout the War of 1812.
Visitors are invited to enjoy two interactive exhibits: take a turn weaving on the loom, or connect a call through the telephone operating system which is still working.
