"South Deerfield- To Build New School-House"

The new South Deerfield School that was to be built, as noted here, replaced a two-story brick building built in the early 1880s that the school district had outgrown. When it was finished the next year in 1913, it was a modern building including central heat, indoor plumbing, and separate school rooms for the classes. In a sense, the building itself represented the growth of the school system in Deerfield and in all of Massachusetts, toward a more specialized and expensive, but more effective system.
