The "far" building is an old rural school. It was built about 1910. It was a really amazing building for it's time, not only for the unusual design but also it had not one but two rooms. Even in the 1950's it was still the envy of every other country school in the area.

You've also captured new and old!

I taught in a one school house in rural Vermont 20 years ago...they have a special place in my heart. This one is a beautiful structure. Is it a home, now?

No, it has never been occupied since it was closed in the 1960's. It was purchased with the intent to turn into a private residence, but they could never quite come up with the funds to make the transition. The roof is now gone in spots. I attended a one room school in the same county, and it was always a thrill when we got to go to this building for a softball game between schools. Brookside had INDOOR(!) bathrooms before we did and that awesome feature of two rooms.
