Eaton Grade School (former) – Eaton NY

Description

The historic former Eaton Grade School building in Eaton, New York was, Living New Deal believes, originally one of two similarly designed school buildings built in the Town of Eaton as part of a New Deal project.

The PWA provided a $185,625 grant for a project that included the Morrisville[-Eaton] Central School. Construction on both schools began in 1936.

The school building is now privately owned and fenced off.

PWA Docket No. NY 1118-A.

    I went to school there. It was amazing. Teachers I remember were Ms. Vero and Mrs. Young.
