For many, the cabin once used to teach Indiana history at Brownstown Elementary School became a part of history.
Now, the cabin will have a chance to become a tool and a memory for even more as plans begin to move the unused building from behind the school to the Jackson County History Center Pioneer Village.
Brownstown Community School Board recently approved the donation of the cabin to the history center.
It’s now in the process of talking to contractors and obtaining estimates for moving the one-room schoolhouse built in 1999 to resemble a cabin dating back to the 1840s, History Center volunteer Margo Brewer of Brownstown said.
The cabin was in use until 2008, when the school decided there was a need to focus less on the program and more on the required state standards.
