This building is reminiscent of the first log schools built by Talbot settlers for the children on their concession after homes were established. Circa 1830s.
Fanshawe Pioneer Village’s Log School is a replica building, constructed by a “Students Working on Environmental Enhancement Projects” (SWEEP) crew in 1974. The school was originally built beside Lochaber Church, on what is now Concession I of Fanshawe Pioneer Village. The building was later relocated to Orchard Road, and then moved once again in 2006 to its present location on Concession I.
