Schools of the Past: Greene District 11 Indian Brook


This week we return once again to the western section of the Township of Greene for another chapter of school history and the one-room schools which were so important to the education of the children of another year and another time. The Indian Brook School began life in the year 1830 and would be active till after centralization came in and finally was the death of yet another educational building in 1945. The photo (s) of the school which were taken in 1908 and 1962 respectively give us the prized look of how the school looked when in operation and the other of how it looked when it was converted to a private dwelling. Mrs. Folsom’s book “Town of Greene - Rural School Districts” p. 42 relates the extensive research that she conducted regarding all the district schools of the Greene Township.
