Old 1800s Schoolhouse Discovered

School may be out for the summer, but class is always in session when you're living inside an 1893 schoolhouse.

Located just before the start of the peaceful Catskill mountains in Lumberland, New York, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom home holds history that's just as rich as its interior.

Originally serving as the Hillside School up until 1949, the building has also operated as a gospel chapel and most recently a boutique inn.

Fully restored, the schoolhouse contains characteristic slate chalkboards, 16-foot ceilings, stained glass and hardwood floors.

The belltower is striking and charming, including a cast iron bell and soaring rustic staircase.

This white-shingled piece of history is being sold furnished, meaning vintage collectors and history buffs alike will have a field day scavenging through the custom-made furniture and 19th century décor.

The house is on the market for a cool $650K, and we suggest you best come prepared to learn.
