Bingo Road School House
Project Overview & Specifications
- Project Location: Waite, ME
Tucked away in the northeast part of Washington County lies an old 1887 one-room schoolhouse on Bingo Road in Waite, ME. The schoolhouse was built after the Tomah Stream school came to an end. The Bingo Road Schoolhouse taught students from its inception until the early 1950s when the town of Waite decided to move the students to District 1, thereby combining the institutes.
Following the closing of the Bingo Road Schoolhouse, Kronenberger & Sons founder, Thomas J. Kronenberger Sr. purchased the building to use as his seasonal hunting camp. The Bingo Road Schoolhouse has since received structural work, new paint, and various other exterior repairs in addition to interior modifications such as modern plumbing and electrical. The old schoolhouse still has its original look and feel and some of the original books used to teach classes are still present.
