Shirley Farone says: "This was taken about 10 a.m. . . My Dad attended the Muscallonge schoolhouse as a child and went to Brownville in 9th grade. . . . Notice the tools shed out back -- that has been moved since the days of its usage. Used to be to the rear left of the schoolhouse. At the time I was in there, a farmer had stored hay there."

Child's Gazetteer of Jefferson County, N. Y., for Town of Hounsfield, page 471: "Outside the village the first school was opened in the 'Muskalonge' neighborhood in 1808, by Amasa Fox. The next year a frame school house was built there."
