MANFRED, N.D. (AP) — Officials are using a State Historical Society Cultural Heritage Grant to help restore an old schoolhouse in the town of Manfred.

The Minot Daily News reports ( ) that the schoolhouse in the town on U.S. Highway 2 east of Harvey was built in 1910. It's among several buildings that essentially make the town a living museum.

Members of Manfred History and Preservation Inc. are dedicated to preserving the history of the town and showing visitors what life was like in a prairie village in the early 20th century.

Once the schoolhouse restoration has been completed, one classroom will be set up to represent a classroom of by-gone years and the other classroom will exhibit the history of the Manfred Public School District that dates to the late 1890s.
