Visit of Cormier-Village’s historical school
École historique de Cormier-Village
615 Cormier-Village Rd, Cormier-Village, Beaubassin-est, NB

Immerse yourself in the last century!

The school was built in the heart of the village around 1880 and is still located on its original site. It houses a single classroom, with a wood stove in the middle and rows of old desks. Items, school supplies, photos and historical notes will evoke childhood and school day memories for some. For others, it’s an opportunity to learn a bit of history on the generation that came before them: subjects taught, the rural lifestyle and school governance.
