Schoolhouse Moved to New Site

Posted: August 24, 2022

The Pot Hollow one room schoolhouse has now been moved to its new site next to the Master’s Hotel in Burr Oak, Iowa.  Thank you to Alysworth House Movers from Wadena, IA for your hard work in the heat, and your patience and flexibility in meeting numerous challenges during the prep and the move.  And thank you to Tollefson Construction of Mabel, MN for your work in making this building stable and safe to move.
Upon lifting the schoolhouse, it was found that extensive work will still need to be done before opening the schoolhouse to the public, including new support beams, floor joists and sub-flooring.
Thank you to all who have contributed to this project. We will continue our fundraising efforts to work on the next stage through the winter months, and pour a concrete ramp into the building in the spring of 2023. If you would like to help, please donate today:
