Completed in 1934, and opened as the K-12 Cohocton Central School. Later became Wayland-Cohocton Elementary School. As of 2022, it became Wayland-Cohocton Prekindergarten School. The tower is octagonal. Possibly this is a reference to Cohocton’s Orson Squire Fowler, the great 19th-century popularizer of the octagon house. Total cost of the building was $110,000. The Public Works Administration (PWA) provided both a grant and a low-interest loan.
