April 06, 2024  •  Leave a Comment

The 1817 Stone Schoolhouse, a one-story, two-bay by two-bay stone building with a gable roof, is located on the property of the Ashokan Center. It was constructed in 1817 and operated as a school for the Shokan district from 1817 to 1842, after which it functioned as a cooper shop and a dwelling. It had been abandoned for most of the 20th century when it was given to the Ashokan Camp and staff dismantled it and reconstructed it on its present site in 1985.

 

The 1817 Schoolhouse is located on the grounds of the Ashokan Center, a non-profit organization dedicated to outdoor and environmental education. The center hosts school groups and hobby and community events such as concerts, blacksmithing, square dancing, guitar camp and the fall festival. The beautiful 374-acre property, being home to Winchell Falls, the 1885 Ashokan/Turnwood Covered Bridge, Cathedral Gorge, a large lake, a barnyard and a horse pasture, is like taking a step back in time. Although the Ashokan Center is private property, you can take advantage of one of its numerous public events to tour the scenic grounds.
