1920-1923: June 10th, the 1st electrical installation in Farmingville is completed in the home of Septer Terry. Millard Gilbert Terry, (descendant of Elijah Terry, son of Septer Terry) teaches 33 and 31 students respectively, using the 50 odd books available in their bookshelves which they called their library. The children are seated in double desks fastened to the floor. Millard wrote that as a school boy in this same schoolhouse, he and a gang of boys would go to the North High Hill (part of today’s Lidge Drive) during their lunch hour. They would run the mile and be back in time to hear the school bell ringing. 1921 – a 1 room schoolhouse was built for the resident children of Holtsville Sanitorium and kept in use until 1942.
