Bridport in Addison County, Vermont — The American Northeast (New England)
Bridport District Schoolhouse #1
Erected c. 1864, this one-room schoolhouse served hundreds of children in Bridport for nearly a century. Originally founded as the first district school in Bridport, it later became known as Hathorne School, reflecting the name of a nearby landowner. The restored building is a wood frame design on a stone foundation and features two entrances, one for boys and one for girls. A large woodstove heated the building and a cast iron bell called the children to class each morning.
Erected 2015 by Vermont Division for Historic Preservation.
