1810 Moores Corner School
Just 27 years after the Revolutionary War the Moores Corner School in the small historic New England village of Leverett, Massachusetts was established. The building still survives in quite original condition and retains all of its original six over six pane windows. The Leverett Historical Society’s CSAA Building Preservation Grant will be used in preserving these windows.
1830 Red Rock School
About to celebrate its 200th year, the Red Rock School sits into a little hillside on the country road in East Chatham, NY, where it served young scholars for several generations. This one story building fortunately has not been altered and retains a beautiful and unusual vaulted ceiling. The Red Rock Historical Society’s CSAA Building Preservation Grant will be used to restore the original siding that appears in an early school photo.
1863 District #9 South Village School
The 160 year old #9 South Village schoolhouse sits on a quaint New England green facing the village Meeting House directly across the way. Recently this historic New Hampshire school was condemned and cannot be used without upgrades. The Sutton Historical Society’s CSAA Building Preservation Grant will help with restoration so the school can be reopened. Many will remember visiting this wonderful school and site during our workshop tour at the 2017 CSAA Conference in New London, New Hampshire.
