Eight Square Schoolhouse: Then and Now

The History Center in Tompkins County just sent out a message about their annual meeting this Thursday the 10th. They'll be serving refreshments at 5:00pm, having a business meeting from 5:30 to 5:45, and then spending 5:45 to 6:30pm on a "Special Presentation: Carole West and Rhonda Gilmore on The Eight Square Schoolhouse: Then and Now"

It'll be in downtown Ithaca, at 401 E. State/MLK Street, Suite 100. (The Eight Square Schoolhouse itself is on Hanshaw Road in Dryden. I've posted earlier festival pictures.)

I hope the "now" part of the presentation goes beyond the romantic to address the condition of the building. The History Center is fundraising and planning for long needed structural repairs. This little building is a gem in the Town of Dryden and we're fortunate that The History Center has the organizational resources to protect it. I hope we can help with financial support.
