Came across the attached picture and trying to determine if this Schoolhouse still exists. My grandmother went to school there, it would have been in approx. 1893-1896. It only says “North Brick Schoolhouse” under the picture.

 My grandparents and great grandparents lived in Rocky Hill – Morton’s and Schoenborn’s with Aunt being married to Frank Robbins who had a farm there  in Rocky Hill.

 Any information you could share would be greatly appreciated.

    The school house is now a house. Going forward to the
    end of the photo is the Robbins farm which is now condos.

    Do you know if Frank Robbins demolished the shool house. I thought the house next door(Martino house) was the school converted to a house. Maybe not? Doug Robbins drobbins2008@live.con

    Yes, the school house, originally built c1830 is now a dwelling. According to the WPA historic building survey the building already a dwelling was owned by Frank Griswold. This was in 1935-39. Also stated there; the school house had been converted to a dwelling some 30 years prior (that would be c 1900) by Frank Robbins. Here is the house in a photo made a few days ago. Link

    Here is a link to the WPA data at the CT State Library site where you can see many other early Rocky Hill buildings described and depicted.
