Come and discover a place where time seems to stand still. The Little Red School House is part of CAMI's Historical Heritage Complex, and is nestled in the small village of Old Harry within the Municipality of Grosse Ile. The Little Red Schoolhouse is a reminder of simpler times where students gathered into a one room schoolhouse to learn their daily lessons. At the Little Red Schoolhouse one can visualize the old classroom with the aid of the existing hardwood floor, chalkboard, and two original desks. Over the years the museum's collection has grown and evolved to include old photographs, stories, and artifacts that help depict days gone by. These items will bring you back in time and give you an inside view of the English speaking community and their way life. Rates : Entrance for two museums (Veteran museum and the Little Red School House) : Adult : $5, 50 years old and older: $5, 11 years old and under: free.
This interactive workshop will engage you into a unique and fun experience based on the traditional skills of our past. Although the workshop uses a more modern technique for the fabrication of the product, Grammy Jean will take you through an interpretative presentation of how butter was made in days gone by. This workshop seeks to recognize the important role women played in the organization of the household, as well as to highlight the extensive labor endured by our ancestors for their ultimate survival. Each participant will leave the workshop with their very own butter, buttermilk biscuits and recipe card!
This workshop will demonstrate to you how fish (and meat) was preserved during the days of our ancestors, when refrigerators and electricity were nowhere to be found!

Come spend the morning with Grandma Jean, learning the traditional ways of our ancestors, as you create and taste your own culinary masterpiece!
