The historic Epler School building was moved on Tuesday, July 7th from the location where it stood for over 170 years to its new home at the Berks County Heritage Center. The one-room stone schoolhouse was built in 1847 and operated as a school for almost 85 years. The 145-ton building was moved 1.5 miles; the move took 3-4 hours to complete. Friends of Epler School plan to use the schoolhouse to educate visitors on 19th century life in Berks County. The schoolhouse is now next to the Heritage Center’s Distelfink.
