The Capitol Hill School, at the corner of Washington and Maple Streets, is a slice of bygone Americana showcasing education in the days before computers and magnet schools. Located near the anticipated site of the Michigan state capitol, it was built in 1860 and served as a school for 100 years. The Marshall Historical Society-owned museum hosts hundreds of area schoolchildren each year for hands-on demonstrations of the classrooms of yesteryear.
The museum is open by appointment only – 24 hour notice required. Please call the Historical Society at 269-781-8544 to arrange a tour.
