Barton Academy And Graded School


Built in 1908, the school had "eleven classrooms, a library, a laboratory, and rooms for physical education." It also had a "modern heating system, lavatories, large windows and electric lights." The cost for this building was $42,000. Parents had to sign a form "documenting that their children had studied three hourse on a daily basis." source: A History of Barton Vermont by Darlene Young.

This photo will be was replaced as soon as my MacBook (and software) comes home again because I was able to edit it to a larger size and better color. It is still crooked though. When clicked, this photo will open, full size, in a new window.
