Jackson Twp. District 1 School -- Lake Gage School

This is the Lake Gage School as it appeared in 1960. The school house was closed  in 1922 and was sold to Daniel Danning in about 1927. Daniel Danning passed away in 1940. His wife raised their 7 children there with no running water. Mrs. Danning lived there until 1964. The school house was originally clapboard sided. The building is now only partially intact and not in salvageable condition. An interior photo from approximately 1896 can be seen under the name of Lloyd Johnson in Steuben County Ancestor Photos.
This information was obtained through the research of Mr. Bill Howarth and Kay Lash of the Steuben County Library. Photo was courtesy of Betty I (Danning) Smith.
