South Seneca Elementary School – Interlaken NY

Description

Originally constructed as the Interlaken Central School, what is now the South Seneca Elementary School in Interlaken, New York was constructed with the assistance of federal Public Works Administration (PWA) funds.

The Ithaca Journal: “On June 8, 1934, Interlaken, Ovid, Covert and Lodi created a central school district. In a year and a half, district pupils occupied new building, at Interlaken, built with PWA funds. And Friday night [on April 24, 1936], residents of the district formally dedicated the new building.” The cornerstone was laid on May 6, 1935.
