McKinley School – The Vision:
A “VESSEL” of LEARNING for the past, present and future!
One of 21 schoolhouses built in Bristol described in the following online booklet:
Woodstoves and Backhouses: The Schoolhouses of Bristol, Maine 1800-2000. A brief history of the 21 schoolhouses, most consisting of one room, that served to educate our youth for over 200 years. For most of that time, Bristol included what is now South Bristol and South Bristol schools are included up to current times. Wherever possible, photos of the school in early days are included along with photos that show the same building as it looks today. Bound copies are for sale at Round Pond Schoolhouse Association or can be viewed at the Bristol Area Library and Rutherford Library.” ~ Phil Averill, Author
