1. Pig Knoll School Marker
Inscription. Architect Walter Robb Wilder designed this one-room schoolhouse in 1915 for Ramapo District Eleven in which he owned a farmstead. Attended by neighborhood children for 16 years, the school later became the West Pomona Community Center. Symmetrical in form and constructed of Rockland's abundant glacial fieldstones, the building has a sense of monumentality, yet expresses its own place and time. THE WEST POMONA COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION, INC.
 
Erected by The Historical Society of Rockland County.
