The Churchville Schoolhouse is a National Register of Historic Places property (built circa 1850) that is owned by the City of Elmhurst and managed by the Elmhurst Historical Museum. This historic structure, which features one of the few remaining one-room schoolhouses in the state of Illinois on its original site, has undergone a major restoration and is now available for school groups and community programs. Field trips for school, scout, and adult groups can now be booked through the Elmhurst Historical Museum for an interactive living history experience with a trained school marm (pictured at right) taking students back in time to 1910.
