Ira Central School

Some estimate this school began operation in the 1780s, which could mean it is the oldest school in Vermont. The public records are sparse from that time period so it cannot be confirmed. The school closed in 1991.

Location of the school on the Beers Map of 1869.

The school is currently unoccupied
