Kinghorn School Days

Creator(s): King Township Museum

Between 1895 and 1936, the one-room school house at Kinghorn in King Township (Ontario), was run by one individual, a no-nonsense teacher named Walter Rolling. Walter and his family offer us a chance to explore how people adapt to communities, and how communities grow around people, especially special people. Walter was the son of Benjamin Rolling, one of the first African Canadians to serve as a postmaster in Canada.
