Hornby School Museum Receives Grant from Ronald McDonald House Charities Erie

Congratulations Hornby School!

In June the Ronald McDonald House Charity of Erie awarded the Hornby School Restoration Society an $8,000 grant for construction of a covered picnic pavilion which the one-room school museum plans to use as an outdoor classroom.

The Hornby School Restoration Society was formed in 1973 to restore and maintain an original one-room school house built in 1875. Today, the Hornby School is a living museum where visitors may experience school days as they were in the 1870’s using authentic artifacts, books, pump and outhouse. The museum is open June – October Sundays 1:00-5:00 pm and is located at 10000 Station Road (Rte 430) in Greenfield Township.

The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Erie strives to improve the lives of young people in Northwestern Pennsylvania by awarding grants to local non-profit organizations for programs that directly benefit children. Funding is focused on three main areas: healthcare/medical research, civic and social services, and education and the arts.
