IT’S ELEMENTARY – LESSONS FROM THE NEW BALTIMORE SCHOOLHOUSE

The New Baltimore Conservancy  partnered with New Baltimore resident Francine Matalon-Degni in a Greene County Council on the Arts grant to fund the exhibit “It’s Elementary – Lessons from the New Baltimore Schoolhouse”, a collection of oral histories as told by those who attended the school. They will be presented as an exhibit of photographs and storytelling panels, with an accompanying catalog. This project not only underscores current community pride, but also provides an intimate picture of the life coursing through and surrounding this four-room schoolhouse, from the 1920’s through the school’s closing in 1963.
