Lanesfield School plans open house

Small brick building with a field of grass around it

The free Lanesfield School Fall Open House is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 29 at the Lanesfield Historic Site, 18745 S. Dillie Rd., Edgerton.

Attendees are invited to celebrate autumn 1904-style while they experience life as a student in a one-room schoolhouse built in 186 9 and offers a perfect place to take a trip through time. The school is the last remaining building of the bygone community of Lanesfield founded in 1858.

Open house offers old-fashioned fun with hands-on activities, the Missouri Town Band, outdoor games and lessons in the schoolhouse with costumed teachers. Call 913-715-2570 for more information.

Note: Lanesfield Historic Site is three miles from Mildale Farm which is having its annual fall fest on Oct. 29.
