Burschville School House

Visit Corcoran’s One-Room School House
Location:
Corcoran School 22995 County Road 10, Corcoran, MN

In 1894 on CO RD 10 west of CO RD 116 1/4 mile east of CO RD 19, a school house was built in Corcoran and Burschville. District 107 served the farming community until May 1967, when the school closed and the furnishings were sold at an auction. Later the North Hennepin Pioneer Society purchased the one-acre piece of land where the school stood from the Weinand family for $1,000. After a couple of years of searching, buying ,and receiving donations, it again resembles the one-room school house you may remember. 

Open house fundraiser functions during the

summer help keep up the expenses of insurance, painting, utilities, maintenance and lawn mowing. The North Hennepin Pioneer Society is continuously seeking historical documents, photographs, or items you may have for donation. They are also seeking voluntary help for the grounds upkeep, building maintenance labor, and monetary donations to help with these expenses. For donations, more information or to set up a tour contact Bonnie Maue 763-420-3440 or 763-639-1438, Bette Lange 763-498-8507, or Verneal Klersy 763-498-8677.

It is the North Hennepin Pioneer Society's vision that this part of Corcoran’s history will remain to enlighten and enrich future generations.
