West Glenville landmark a lesson in history

The building does not get as many tours from local schools as it once did because of transportation budget cuts. Karis said they do however get the occasional private school visit.

"We had a school come last year. The moms pulled up in their minivans, and it was nice to have the building filled with children," said Karis.

Some of the items inside the schoolhouse include the teacher's desk, a glass inkwell, the recitation bench, the wooden blackboard, the stove and stovepipe, the map case, the library books marked with green labels, the last teacher's register, and the school bell, which was found in a nearby field.

The school is open for visits on weekends June 30 through Aug. 26 from 1 to 4 p.m., and then into the fall only by appointment. For information, call 372-6314 or 688-1221.""
