Rockefeller estate, 1-room schoolhouse eyed for registers

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) The Rockefeller family estate north of New York City and a one-room schoolhouse in a remote town on the edge of the Adirondacks are among 16 properties and districts recommended for the State and National Registers of Historic Places.

The New York State Board for Historic Preservation released a list of the nominations for inclusion on the registers, which can help preservation and restoration efforts through government grants.

The nominations include the Rockefeller country estate at Pocantico Hills in Westchester County and Dresden District School No. 2, a rural one-room schoolhouse erected around 1880 between Lake George and Lake Champlain.

Other nominees include the Schoharie Village Historic District, located in a rural upstate area settled by refugee Palatine Germans in the early 18th century.
