Peach Alley School House

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.
