Andover Borough in Sussex County, New Jersey — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
The Lackawanna Cutoff
During the Cut-Off's construction, the railroad purchased the original Huntsville Schoolhouse and built a new structure, rather than change the alignment of the rail line. As construction progressed, the old schoolhouse was buried under tons of rock, to the sound of cheering school children who watched from a distant hillside.
Erected 2003 by Sussex County Board of Chosen Freeholders and Sussex County Historical Marker Committee.
