Today’s puzzle features a New England schoolroom in the Hall of Everyday Life in Early America, which opened in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in 1957. It included an entire seventeenth-century Massachusetts Bay Colony house, three eighteenth-century rooms, an early nineteenth-century bedroom, and the schoolroom.
