No More Teachers No More Books

There had been a school on School Street as long as anyone alive can remember. Ed O'Leary 86, now from Hopkinton told this reporter "myself and your uncle David Moore's class were the last to attend both the old wooden school and then the new Andrews School, I believe in 1939. The current building lanquished for more than fifteen years, while the town searched for heirs of the donated playground which held the restriction that any use of the property would have to be for educational purposes.

The winning bidder for the property, O'Leary Builders hopes to build four single family or several duplexes on the property.

The demolition of the school began shortly after noon on Tuesday and should be wrapped up by Wednesday.

The spire atop the cupola  atop the school was salvaged as was the "Andrews School" lettering from the front of the building and is being donated by Builder Steve O'Leary to several local non-profits.
