Nelliston School gets state aid

Nelliston School gets state aid

Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara announced Sunday that funding has been secured to restore a rundown

Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara announced Sunday that funding has been secured to restore a rundown historic schoolhouse in Montgomery County.

The Nelliston School, which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2002, had been waiting for many years to receive funding for basic upkeep. That funding was secured after Santabarbara, D–Rotterdam, called on the state to authorize the release of $10,000.

“This is a major win for the entire community of Nelliston, which will be able to proudly show off this national landmark,” he said. “I’m happy to be part of the effort to keep our local history alive and vibrant.”

The funding will be used to update the plumbing and heating in the building.

The schoolhouse has not been used for educational purposes since 1971 and is owned by the village of Nelliston. After completing renovations, the village hopes to make the building available for public use. Money for the school was initially authorized in 2007, but technical errors prohibited its release.
