Title Lovell Village Schoolhouse
Accession # 1999.02.0002
Description Lovell Village Schoolhouse, 1850-1923. Maine Memory Net: "The original Lovell Village School. One of several brick buildings in the Village. Bricks were most likely made within sight of the building, as there were at least two brickyards in the area. This building became privately owned c. 1921 when the three room Annie Heald School was built across from the Village Store. It was used as a Garage, and then became a private residence. Joan Alpert operated an antique shop there for a season." Currently (2003) owned by Jose Azel. 1978 Town of Lovell Photo Book: "The Village Schoolhouse was built in 1850, and was in use as a school building from then until 1923, when the Annie Heald School was opened. The following is taken from the Summer Schools Report by Henry Hutchins in 1865 - 'For about twenty years blackboards have been used in our schools. They have affected a great change in the method of teaching and paid a large dividend on so small an outlay. And now there is at least one piece of apparatus which should be as extensively used in our schools as the blackboard. I refer to the Globe. No school can afford to be without one. I hope soon to use them in every district in town'." (no writing on back)
