Hackledam School District #5

Thanks to the donation of a plot of land by Horton W. Case, this remote school was opened  in 1875 at the end of Katrina Falls Rd, several miles south of Rock Hill, to serve the children of a logging community that grew along the Neversink River.  Children from the west side had to cross the river via a cable suspension foot bridge to attend school.  Logs were floated down river during the spring flood waters.  The school building was moved northerly in 1916 due to a shift in the local population.  (reason unknown).    See the page for Hackle Dam for the second location.
