Our museum is hosting a provincial conference on April 13, 2015.
SLATE means So Let's All Talk Education.
This annual event takes place in one-room-school museums throughout Ontario and Northern New York.
Our theme this year is "From John A.'s Slate to Josh's Tablet".
We plan to meet at the Discovery Centre at Fort Henry for part of the day and in our Museum during the afternoon.
We hope that SLATE members will enjoy historic Kingston and the opportunity to talk about education, then and now.

Experience social and educational life in the pioneer years through the displays of school text books, artifacts, memorabilia and photographs. You may even identify a great-grandparent!
The museum has extensive archives for research purposes. Please call to book appointments.
Bring your family to our schoolroom set in the style of a one-room rural school house in the 1900-1930 era. The desks and artifacts were collected from the schools which at one time dotted the countryside.
Sit at a wooden desk, write on a slate with a slate pencil. Browse through old Ontario readers. Try your skill at some arithmetic facts and solve problems encountered in the past!
