Schools of the Past: McDonough District #8 – Beckwith/Hayden

The district school house route this week takes us to County Road #7 and just above the Beckwith Road for a glimpse of the district so named above. The photograph with this article was in 1976 and documented as being Great Lot #28 in the township. For this article it will be quoted verbatim as was researched first by the late Elinor Troicke - historian and for the documentation researched by Mrs. Jennie Preston. Without this information these articles would not be possible. Additionally credit must be given to Donna Robb for allowing this information to be copied for this series on McDonough’s district schools. As a note of interest, this writer was asked the other evening, how many district schools in Chenango County and when it was related 315, to say they were surprised is a mild statement.
