BLEECKER - For students today, it might be difficult to imagine an era
when going to school meant gathering in a single room with a single
teacher - and with no indoor plumbing, let alone an internet
connection.

Only a few of the region's old, one-room country schoolhouses remain
standing, serving as reminders of the time when many children in rural
communities stopped attending school after eighth grade.

In Bleecker, the old District No. 3 school, at 114 Lily Lake Road, has
been preserved by its owner, Nancy Buyce, who was a student there in
the 1940s and '50s before going to Gloversville High School.
