From KNSA's President . . .
A long process . . . begun in Oct. 2018, came to fruition as the town of North Stonington transferred ownership of the 1840 schoolhouse on Clarks Falls Road to us on September 15.
KNSA will rehabilitate this historic building into a deed-restricted, affordable home. This will then be offered for sale to an income-eligible, working family.
The charitable intent of the original deed will be satisfied and the building preserved with historic architectural features intact.
KNSA, the Town and the North Stonington Historical Society invite you to celebrate with us at the Hewitt Farm pavilion on October 15, 1-3 pm (rain date October 16, 1-3 pm).
It will include:
-Displays of the building’s former life as a school, provided by the historical society;
-Remarks by our selectpersons and KNSA will tell how we accomplished this transfer. -Layout plans will show what this historic building will become, once rehabilitated.
-Maps to 119 Clarks Falls Road that will direct you so you can view the building on tyour own. -AND balloons, refreshments and period games for the kids.
Through YOUR support of our fundraising, we were able to pay for the legal costs to assume ownership of this property.
