Gramp's Old School is a newly renovated one room schoolhouse built in 1850. Be one of the first to stay here! We've done a meticulous rehab and worked hard to preserve many historic features including the original chalkboards, hardwood floors and windows. We've updated the space with a modern kitchen, bathroom, and cable internet in our 760 square ft. Located in the countryside just outside the village of Greenwich and 25 minutes to Saratoga. We're 1/4 mile to a Battenkill River public access.

The space
Gramp's Old School is very near and dear to my heart. My grandfather attended the school in the 1940's and my father and I have spent the last 2 and a half years rehabilitating it. Now we're looking forward to sharing it with you all!

We're eligible for the National Register of Historic Places and expect to be listed next year. You'll find many original items in the schoolhouse that the students once used, including the bathroom sink, chalkboards, and coat hooks. The exterior is exactly the same, including the sign that reads "District No. 11 Established 1850."

We've repurposed much of the original building materials. The large kitchen island is clad in barn board from a shed that once stood on the property. You can find children's initials and dates if you look closely! The shiplap feature wall in the bathroom is from shiplap that was originally in that room. All the trim in the main room is original. There's even a drawing of an animal signed by a former student on a piece of trim that we couldn't bear to paint over. The floor in the main room still holds the imprints of where the desks were bolted to floor and the indent where the coal stove once stood. Historic details abound!

We love our country neighborhood. The views are beautiful from every window. We're across the road from a working cattle farm, moo! The Battenkill River is very close and a public access point for fishing and kayaking is a 1/4 mile down the road. For winter sports we are 15 minutes from Willard Mountain and near a snowmobile trail. The schoolhouse is located right off a state road so no worries about snowy roads in winter!

I was born and raised in Greenwich, NY. After 10 years of southern living and working in arts non-profits I'm back home. I've brought a hubby, toddler, and two southern dogs (that are now very chilly) with me! I'm embarking on a new adventure to save historic buildings. Gramp's Old School is my first project. My grandfather actually attended the school in the 1940's and now my father and I have put it back together! Who knows what's next?!
