Weathersfield rejects renovations to historic school

Posted: Updated:

WEATHERSFIELD, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont town has rejected renovating a former schoolhouse built in 1879.

Voters in Weathersfield decided against financing the restoration of the brick portion of the village school and demolishing the more recently built wings, constructed in 1954 and 1969.

The Eagle Times reports the school has remained vacant since 2008 when the district voted to consolidate its kindergarten to eighth-grade students into one upgraded building in Ascutney.
