Old Stone Schoolhouse

The Old Stone Schoolhouse was the first one-room district school in Fairhaven. It was built in 1828 and used as a school until 1896. In 1843 Manjiro Nakahama, the first Japanese person to live in America, attended classes here. It is a stop on the Manjiro Trail. The Fairhaven Office of Tourism opens the restored schoolhouse to the public on Saturday afternoons in June, July and August. Hours are 12:30 to 4:30 p.m.
