—Museum in the Streets —

BY 1879, THE POPULATION of Knowersville had grown sufficiently to merit the construction of a larger school, and the hamlet's third school building was constructed that year on School Street, later renamed Lincoln Avenue. The Lincoln Avenue School provided education for Village youth until 1902, when the Village's fourth school building, the Altamont Union Free School, opened on Grand Street. In
June 1902, James Keenholts purchased the former school building and property at auction for $875. In 1904, Keenholts had contractor Percy Schoonmaker move the building one block west to its current location. At its new location, the building was utilized as an apple packing facility, a dance hall, a meeting hall, village offices, fire department, and a basketball court.
de Knowersville creció lo suficiente para merecer la construcción de una escuela más grande, y el tercer
edificio escolar de la aldea se construyó ese año en la Calle School, luego renombrada Avenida
Lincoln. La Escuela Lincoln Avenue le impartió educación a la juventud del pueblo hasta 1902, cuando se abrió el cuarto edificio escolar en la calle Grand, la Biblioteca Libre de Altamont. En junio de 1902, James Keenholts compró el edificio en subasta por $875, y le pidió al contractor Percy Schoonmaker que lo mudara a una cuadra al oeste de su actual localidad. En su nueva ubicación, se usó el edificio como centro de empacado de manzanas, salón de baile, salón de reuniones, oficinas del pueblo, cuerpo de
bomberos, y cancha de baloncesto.
