  Goodwin Schoolhouse

The Goodwin Schoolhouse was built in East Hartford in 1820 by Mr. Goodwin, a local paper manufacturer. Mr. Goodwin built the school on his property and hired a teacher to teach his own and the neighboring children. His school was used as a school until 1855. In that year the children started attending the local East Hartford schools. It is one of the 3 historic buildings in Martin Park shown by the Historical Society during the summer.
