Yesderday Mommy went to Steinbach Manitoba which is about 30 minutes east of Winnipeg and visited the Steinbach Mennonite Museum. It has been at least six years since she had last been there. They have a museum plus a whole little town. In the town are two school houses, one of which Mommy's mother attended. Her mother went to that little one room school for grades 1 to 9. Here are some pictures Mommy took:
Here is the Main Street of the town.
The above two pictures are a sod house that would be similar to what Mommy's Great Grandparents would have lived in.
This is the windmill that was used to grind the grain to make flour. You can buy flour that was made here.
This was Grandmas school.
This is Mommy teaching school. BOL!
These are more pictures of the school.
Mommy remembers her Mommy talking about the school. There were grades 1 to 9 all in the same room. She started school one year late because she was going to be the only kid in grade one. By starting a year later there were three kids in grade one. She also talked about how they were suppose to speak English at the school but they mostly spoke low German unless the school inspector was there.
I will post some more pictures of the village next time.
