The Little Red Schoolhouse was built as a firehouse about 1860. Through the years it has been used as a school, scout house, recreation center, dwelling, auto body shop, storage shed, and during the Civil War, as Borough Council chambers. The restored building, in its new role as a museum, is again a center of education as it helps us to remember our heritage.
Any person interested in the work and aim of the Elizabethtown Historical Society shall be eligible for active membership upon payment of annual dues or Lifetime membership. See tab at the top for a link to our membership form.
