Old Miakka Schoolhouse

This historic schoolhouse has a bell tower like the bell tower on the one room school I attended from 5th-8th grades. I'm happy that people are interested enough in maintaining the building and grounds.
Every year there is an event called a Hootenanny that I've attended for two years now. There is no entrance fee, a really nice meal for about $7. per person, scheduled performances by local musicians and entertainers, and local people displaying things they make to sell or just to display. This year a couple was demonstrating how to make butter. And the silent auction also usually has nice items to sell.

Reminds me of the school house my mom went to, which I think is still there.
