Schoolhouse memories Courtesy photoSuzanne Foss shared this photo of Charlotte School No. 2. Known as the Spear School, this school was on the north side of Ferry Road, just west of Lake Road. This photo was taken in 1949, Foss’ first-grade year. The next year she was in the new consolidated school at Charlotte Central School, along with all the other Charlotte students from the 14 one-room schoolhouses. Foss (née De Wispelare) is the second girl from the left in the plaid dress. After closing this school building was moved to a nearby residence to use as a garage. If you know who the others in this photo are or have any other information, we would love to hear from you.
