Schools of the Past: Greene District 18: East River Road


Written previously numerous times, if new information relevant to any of the district schoolhouses is found the pages of the book remain open for any new inclusion of historical information. Such is the case with the District #16 - Brisben or #22 - Greene/Oxford. A phone message was directed to me by Mr. Tim Fowlston - Oxford, New York. In my article of February 11, 2011 wrote that the “Upper School” was moved and in late years ending up as a garage on the Francis Hill farm, south of Oxford on Route 12. Mr. Fowlston informed me that yes his garage was the old District #16 or #22 school. He then advised me that there was nothing inside that resembled the schoolhouse, however, there are two windows in the now garage which might have been part of the windows of the former schoolhouse. Permission was granted to me to photograph this garage (schoolhouse) for future use, if and when we have spring and no more snow. Perhaps at a later date this photo may be included in a future article.
