Granville in Addison County, Vermont — The American Northeast (New England)
The Corner School
Granville School District #10
The one-room Corner School, established here at “Codfish Corners,” operated from 1871 to 1951 for grades 1 through 8. Previously, G.V. Wilson’s blacksmith shop (1860-69) and the I.H. Archer Store (1869-74) stood at this site. Granville once had 10 school districts, each with a multi-grade schoolhouse. The Corner School opened at the population apex to serve Granville’s upper village and neighboring hill farms. Children were taught reading, spelling, cursive writing, arithmetic and algebra, natural philosophy and science, and US and world geography. Upon closing, the building was the Free Library. In 2021, 150 years after it first opened, the Corner School was dedicated as the Granville Community Resource Center.
