Roof Restoration of Schoolhouse # 3

In 1985, the last surviving intact one-room schoolhouse in Georgetown was donated to the town by the Perley family. Built in the 1830s and known as the Hill School or Schoolhouse # 3, the structure was re-located from the top of Andover Hill to its' current site next to the Brocklebank Museum. As one of seven one-room schools used by the town until 1905, the structure offers a window on the past and is visited by many residents each year. It has been almost twenty years since Schoolhouse #3 was moved to its' current location, and the need for further restorative work is apparent. The CPA Committee is supporting a request from the Historical Commission that funds be expended to restore the roof.
