Abandoned Vermont: Dover Schoolhouse

This one room schoolhouse sits on a dirt road in southern Vermont. It appears to be recently inhabited, though the current broken windows, messy interior and damaged foundation say that no one uses the building currently. However, it is far from gone and certainly worthy of preservation. It is one of the oldest structures in Dover.

This 1790 schoolhouse was updated with large windows to meet new school standards, likely in the early decades of the 20th century.

Looking through a broken window you can see the original ceiling and added acoustic tile ceiling, historic light fixtures and a mix of furniture.

Have you seen any other 18th century schoolhouses where you live?
