The Upper Falls School: The Little Red Schoolhouse:
The Upper Falls School was built in 1842 for $474. The school house was one room with the teacher's desk on the opposite side of the room from the door. The wood stove was in the middle of the room with benches for the girls on the left and the boys on the right.

This is what 278 Central Avenue looks like now.
