Award for Schoolhouse

Pete Clarke recently accepted an award from the Adirondack Architectural Heritage Preservation on behalf of the Paradox Community Center.

Built in 1830, the schoolhouse served local students for over a century!  In 1937, after the centralization of area schools, the building was deeded to the Paradox Community Center. 

Since then, it has been used for various community functions such as family reuinions, PLA meetings, square dances, etc..

The building had deteriorated until 2004 when the association began a campaign for a major restoration.

Today, the restored building is not only a delightful reminder of our past history, but a comfortable place for many community gatherings.

Most recently, Pete has had the floors redone, and has added a working bathroom(!) and an air conditioner.

If you would like to contribute to futher support our Community Center, you can send a check to the PCC at Box 87, Paradox, NY 12858.
