Little Poplar Schoolhouse Christmas Ornament

$22.00

The 2021 commemorative Christmas ornament is of an icon of Mitchell County education: the Little Poplar Schoolhouse. First located in the Poplar community, the one-room schoolhouse constructed in the 1880s was dismantled and rebuilt on the campus of Mitchell High School in 1981 through efforts of retired teachers, Mitchell County residents, and a Z. Smith Reynolds grant. The pot-bellied stove, benches for students, and other memorabilia exemplify early education in the county.
