As you drive down Baltzer Meyer Pike, you may see school children dressed in costumes of the 1800s marching into Harrold School #8. It is not your imagination. It is part of a unit of study featuring history and literature about life in the 1800s implemented by the Hempfield Area School District

During April and May, each of the third-grade classes in the Hempfield Area District five elementary schools will spend a full-day at the schoolhouse. The district has retained retired Hempfield teacher Liz Wolf to serve as schoolmarm. The students regular teachers accompany them to class.
