324 Como Schoolhouse


This was the Como Schoolhouse. It was built in 1895, burnt down in 1900, and re-built. Harold "Pete" Stephenson and Francis Halcro (one of the 13 children of Captain Halcro - see 545) often travelled to the school by dog-sled early in winter mornings to light the fire. This was one of three one-room schoolhouses on the stretch of Main Road covered in this publication - the second was on your left just after crossing the railway tracks for the second time and the third was at Aird and Main (see 749). The current owners, John and Donna Nassr, while completely renovated the building, have carefully retained the original thick stone walls, flagstone floors from Quarry Point, and pine beams.
