The Norfolk Historical Commission presents the history behind Norfolk's one room schoolhouse. Learn how the one-room school building, built near Cleveland St. in 1845, ultimately became what is now also called "The Schoolroom", a permanent part of The Norfolk Public Library. Hear about the twists and turns of this "Little Building That Could" as its use and purpose changed over the decades, until in 1951 the first Norfolk Public Library came to be.
