Bettendorf, IOWA – January 2, 2024 – Constructed in 1873, the Forest Grove one-room
schoolhouse in Bettendorf has a rich history. On January 18th at 1:30 p.m., the Bettendorf
Public Library’s Community Connection program will host a screening of the film Resurrecting
Forest Grove. The movie will be followed by a question-and-answer session with the Emmy

Connections takes place at the Bettendorf Public Library located at 2950 Learning Campus Dr,

“Resurrecting Forest Grove” cinematically tells the dramatic true story behind the seemingly
impossible task of restoring a vintage one-room school to its 1920s appearance. Footage and
interviews gathered over a decade depict the problems they faced and the solutions they
employed as they attempted to bring the decaying rural icon back to life. More Information
