Minnesota's little red schoolhouse celebrated its 100th birthday this weekend.

The Larsmont Schoolhouse in Two Harbors opened in 1914. It served as a school until 1932, but since then it's also been used as a church and community center among other things.

Folks came out to celebrate one of the few remaining one-room schoolhouses in Minnesota with horse drawn carriage rides, pony rides for kids, and more.

Meryls Wisch with the Larsmont Community Club said a unique aspect about the little red schoolhouse is they have a clock that's been there since 1914 and it still works.
