Spring 2010. Photo by
This was identified by CharlieB as Old Silver Springs High School, NY Route 20, in the village of Silver Springs,
Wyoming County but see comments by visitors below, the location seems to be in error. Some workman's tools by the front entrance.

"Remembering back in 1956 when I started school here. I went to Kindergarten,
1st & 2nd grade here. Then on March 31, 1959 our family of 5 moved 7 miles into
Perry NY and finished the last 10 weeks of 2nd grade here. We lived right across
the street from the school. My mother still lives in this house."
writes "My grandmother Ethel Courtney,
daughter of Ada Courtney and William Courtney, attended this school in 1910. Our
family doesn't have any photos of her. If you or anyone that reads this has a
photo of Ethel Courtney please write back. There will be a reward worth your
while. The urgency of this request is about my mother who is in a nursing home
in Florida at the age of 92 and I would like to frame a photo of her mother and
put it in her room. The photo could be of Ethel young or older. Ethel was born
in 1897. If you need any other information please write."

writes "Photo of Silver Springs High School is in error 1. the Silver Springs
School is located on Church Street in the village 2. It is and was 2 stories
high not three 3. At present, and in 2010 as you state is photo date, is the
business location of Country Line Electric and has some changes but still looks
the the school that it was when built. 4. Route 20 does not go thru the village
of Silver Springs, NY."
