Center School B&B and Museum serves two main purposes; a country school museum on the main floor, and a comfy B&B complete with amenities in the basement level. (A variety of breakast choices, hot and cold, will always be provided.) We recently installed air conditioning. A cozy, quiet place that guests will have all to themselves - nestled in the residential area of a friendly rural community that has a lot to offer.

The space
Center School Museum and B&B is unique because it is an authentic country school that was districted in 1892. The front of the building showcases a photo taken of it by Solomon Butcher, in 1892. The basement was added on when we moved the building to Arnold. The first guests in the B&B were the teacher who taught in its last year 1950-51, and her husband who's given us a lot of information and artifacts to help retain the authenticity. Your stay includes a free visit to the museum. As a retired teacher (2019), I still have a lot to do in the museum above the lodging, however it does look like a country school may have looked in the late 1800s early 1900s. I've done a lot of research and have learned some interesting facts about my school and other country schools. I love showing it!

Guest access
Guests will have access to the entire lower floor. It has a very high ceiling, and two tall egress windows. Guests will be allowed a free visit to the country school museum on the main floor by making arrangements with the host.

Other things to note
(We have had as many as 7 people in the basement, using the two sofa sleepers, bed, and an air mattress, which does fill a lot of the floor space. We do have a playpen available.)

Arnold, Nebraska, United States

The B&B is located in a residential area near two churches. One of the churches (east of the school) has been turned into a residential area where the previous owner taught youth dance classes. It is a quiet, peaceful residential area. The city park with lots of playground equipment and picnic tables is just 2 blocks away. Arnold Public School is also just two blocks away.

I am a school teacher of 34 years, retiring/ed in 2019. I coached sports for 26 years, and coaching High School Speech and Play Production for six seasons. I love being outdoors, and have ridden the Bicycle Ride Across Nebraska 13 times. I love to travel, exploring my own state, and other countries. I love to cook, and I love teaching 4th grade. Reading, gardening, and working on my museum top my spare time. It's a joy to meet and visit with my guests, and show the museum, but I respect their time and can cut my "chat" short. My life-long favorite phrase is "Choose Joy".
