North School Preservation Society recieves North School, Springfield Vermont applauds. video link

For years the North School Preservation Society has worked to save the old grade school in North Springfield and the 5 acres of public recreation land associated with it from being sold off for private development. The efforts have finally come to fruition, and the big moment came this week on Tuesday when the Springfield School District transfered full legal ownership of the property to the North School Preservation Society,, at 10:00 a.m. in the law offices of Brady and Callahan, in beautiful downtown Springfield, Vermont.

There was quite a festive atmosphere at this happy event, many flash bulbs were sacrificed, and a bottle of champagne was nearly popped!

Here is the video, shot and edited by Edward Huse -

The event has opened a new phase for the North School Preservation Society, and they will need all the help they can get to spiff up and maintain the good old North School and the expansive grounds, and interested parties are urged to visit the website,, or to write an email to Ed Fransen,
