GAYLORDSVILLE—Holidays in Gaylordsville will be celebrated at the Little Red Schoolhouse (Gaylord School) on Saturday, Dec. 2 from 10 a.m. to 4 pm. The Gaylord School is the longest continously running one-room schoolhouse in Connecticut, open from 1740 to 1967.

Gaylordsville ornaments will be on sale, including the Schoolhouse, Creche, Methodist Church, Firetruck and Washington Oak. The History of Gaylordsville book will also be available. Updated in 2016, the hardcover is $30 and the soft cover is $20. Also for sale are note cards, Christmas cards and postcards. 

Costume jewelry will be sold, helping to fund the Mimi Burkhardt Continuing Education Scholarship.

Admission is free and refreshments will be served.

Hosts for the event are granddaughters of Bessie Soule Cornwell, who taught at the schoolhouse for 42 years.

For many, this is a part of their holiday family tradition. The Shoppe is filled with the work of local fine artists and artisans for all. There is a huge Christmas Village with a busy train and other decor.
