Coramís single room schoolhouse was built in 1900 and used as a school until 1953. It then became Coramís first public library. It replaced an earlier school that dates back to 1813 and was located in a wooded knoll. It has been moved and now sits behind the Coram Fire Department on Middle Country Road. The fire department was using it for meetings, but now it seems badly in need of renovations. A former student remembers collecting hickory branches for the teacher to strike the hands of those who misbehaved. Collecting those branches must have been a punishment itself.

My dad (Bob Schwebes) and his siblings went to school in this schoolhouse and lived practically across the street! I remember it located by the Coram Fire Department when I was a kid. Thanks for sharing the photo.
