There are several completed Schoolhouse projects in Schoharie County. The Schoharie County Historical Society  - Old Stone Fort complex is home to a relocated school from the Oliver District in Summit.  The Sharon Springs Historical Society has moved a schoolhouse to its grounds. A man in Jefferson moved a Schoolhouse to his property and has done a remarkable job restoring and furnishing it.

  Subject: Schoolhouse Preservation

  Greetings to the list-

  I am doing research on one-room schoolhouse preservation projects and am interested in finding as much firsthand information about such efforts across the state as possible.  My project focuses on greater Finger Lakes area as a start and I have found contacts for the following:

  Ansley Schoolhouse - Geneva
  McDougall Schoolhouse - Romulus
  Barrington #4 in Dundee
  Overacker's Corners in Middlesex
  King Ferry
  Honeoye Falls
  Childs Cobblestone
  Chili Cobblestone
  8 Square in Ithaca
  Avon at Genesee County Museum in Mumford
  Punky Hollow in Springwater
  Shaksboro in Baldwinsville

  I am looking for contacts information on others including
  Town of Benton
  Side Hill
  and any others?

  Any leads anyone can provide Finger Lakes or otherwise would be appreciated.
