Step back in time by visiting the 1894 Wooster Common School No. 38 and the 1910 Brown-McKay Farmhouse. Wooster School is believed to be the oldest one-room frame schoolhouse indigenous to Harris County, Texas. In the near future, we will be adding to the tour an interpretive barn and the 1898 Bert Brown and 1910 John C. Sjolander houses that are in the process of being restored. BHPA welcomes adult groups and youth organizations to take a private tour of its historic buildings.
Teachers, offer your students a field trip that they will never forget as they go back in time over 100 years ago to experience what it was like to attend a one room school and live in a farmhouse with no indoor plumbing. During this living history tour, students will get a glimpse of what life was like in the late 1800s and early 1900s. At present, all third-grade students in Goose Creek CISD tour the Wooster School and Brown-McKay House as part of their social studies curriculum as well as children from other school districts.
BHPA has some of the most outstanding and enthusiastic volunteers who serve as docents dressed in period attire for our historic structures. School and other group tours are $3 per person with a $30 minimum and may be arranged by calling 281.421.2099 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If you need special assistance, please notify us prior to your visit.
These historic buildings are open to the public, free of charge, on the last Saturday of each month (except holiday weekends and in inclement weather) from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
