Step back in time to 1874 and experience this lovingly-maintained one-room school house, with its huge original slateboards, teacher’s desk, and fascinating displays. The schoolhouse was in continuous operation from 1874 until 1968, when it became a community hall that is still in use today.  There are still many local residents who attended Cedar Hill Schoolhouse, and it holds a special place in the heart of the community.

The Cedar Hill School House is conveniently located between Pakenham and Almonte, and on the way to or from Fulton’s Pancake House and Sugar Bush.
