Regarding Maynard School. When the Town of Bovina was created in 1820, it had five common school districts. District one is known commonly as the Maynard district, named for one of Bovina’s earliest settlers, Elisha Maynard. The district was established in 1813, after New York State passed a new common school law establishing school districts the year before. The Maynard family gave the land for construction of the schoolhouse. The current schoolhouse building was constructed in 1849. A school operated here continually until the end of the 1958/59 school year, when the district trustees made the decision to send their children to central schools in Andes or Delhi. Now owned by the town of Bovina, it is the only one–room school in Bovina that still looks like it did when it ceased to operate. In 2014 and 2015, the Bovina Historical Society hosted a week-long ‘day camp’ at the school, where students and teachers went back in time to 1900. They dressed in clothing of the period and had lessons and games from that period.
