Education is an integral part of society, however historically, education has come a long way. Before the creation of large centralized schools, one room school houses served rural communities and played an important role in the education of local children. The former District No. 8 School of Harris, NY is located at this site. The school was established as early as 1875 and served as the center of education for the community for several decades. As roads and modes of transportation improved, schools consolidated, resulting in the closure of many one room schoolhouses. District No. 8 School was expanded but eventually closed and later sold to the Italian American Club in 1961.
