Zion Schoolhouse was built in 1869 to provide free public education for children in the small farming community of L’Amaroux. Children from neighbouring farms came to the one-room schoolhouse to learn basic reading, writing and arithmetic as well as agriculture, nature study, geography and history.

The site includes two buildings: a red brick schoolhouse (circa 1869) restored to circa 1910 that can accommodate receptions, meetings or performances for up to 50 people; and a small administrative building.

Zion Schoolhouse interprets the rural schoolhouse as a symbol of progress and a place for education and ideas. The museum hosts events throughout the year and offers educational programming and school trips.
