McGuffey School

McGuffey School The McGuffey School was constructed in Greenfield Village, as a memorial, in 1934 of logs from a barn located on the Pennsylvania farm in Washington County where William Holmes McGuffey, an educator and author of the McGuffey Eclectic Readers, was born in 1800.

The McGuffey Eclectic Readers, a series of textbooks, were one of the most widely used school books during the mid-1800’s and a favorite of Henry Ford.
