Lebanon Springs Union Free School

The school was registered November 21, 1991 on the National Register of Historic Places. The designation recognizes the architecture of the building and the importance of education in the town. It was built in 1913 and was a rectangular, two story, hipped roof brick building coated in stucco. It sat upon a tooled concrete foundation and was topped with a slate roof. Atop the roof was an eight sided louvered belfry. Still on the grounds of the New Lebanon Junior-Senior High School are the remains of a railroad trestle over the Wyomanack Creek. The school was located on the grounds of the New Lebanon Junior-Senior High School, located on State Rte. 22, Lebanon Springs, NY, but razed by the New Lebanon Central School District due to hazardous conditions.

The cupola can be seen in Shatford Park, located on State Rte. 22 in Lebanon Springs, NY.
