Inscription.  A one-room schoolhouse, Suffern's first, was erected nearby circa 1853. In 1880 a five-room schoolhouse was built on this site. By 1901 a brick school was constructed for $25,000 to accommodate a growing student population. As more students started to further their education, the first high school was incorporated within the structure in 1905. Sold in 1943, the school was converted into the Artwire Factory and in 1995, into apartments.
