Schools of the Past: Greene Districts 22, Scoville and Towslee


Again the confusion continues with the numbering of the Greene School Districts, where we again have two districts of the same number! Why, that answer is lost to history. The historical information is somewhat scant however this writer will attempt to relay the information on hand. The Scoville District was formed in 1825 and approximately in 1849 it was closed. A comparatively short life span compared with the longevity of the previous districts that have appeared in this series of history relevant the Township of Greene. The Towslee District and a photo of this was thankfully saved for posterity was formed apparently about the year 1898 and remained open till 1943. This writer will assume that since the Scoville District had been closed nearly fifty years prior, the reasoning for using the same number for the Towslee District.
