Description

Excerpt from The School Bulletin and New York State Educational Journal, Vol. 31: September, 1904, to August, 1905 Not the same building Well, I should say not, sir. I have seen three buildings on this very site. Fifty years ago we had just a plain two-story wooden schoolhouse, with wooden benches, and eight wood stoves, one for each room. Many a time my back has ached carrying wood up those stairs. In 1865 we put up a brick building, and proud we were of it. A picture of it and all the floor plans were put into Barnard's American Journal of Education. It was three stories high, and had cherry desks with iron standards, and chairs to match. It was heated by a Culver furnace, set in the cellar in double walls of brick masonry, drawing in and heating the cold air from the outside, and sending it into every room by registers. People came from miles around to see that furnace, and father was very proud to explain how it worked. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
