Did you know that Mary from the children’s rhyme Mary Had a Little Lamb was real? You can actually visit the school house where the famous event happened. The schoolhouse used to be in Sterling, Massachusetts, where it was built. However, in the 1920s, Henry Ford decided to move the house to Sudbury, Massachusetts, where it remains to this day. The schoolhouse itself taught grades 1 to 4 and served classes until 1951, when it closed. Mary Sawyer’s Little Red Schoolhouse is available to be toured, though it is certainly not the most grand tour - it being of a 1 room school.
