On this week's Urban Spelunking, OnMilwaukee.com Managing Editor Bobby Tanzilo shares photos from his trip to one of Milwaukee's few remaining 19th century school houses.

Today it is home to the West Allis Historical Society, but a section of the building has been preserved to look like a 1887 schoolhouse.  You can stroll around and see rows of original desks, chalkboards — and of course — students' graffiti carved into the woodwork.
