Newtonville School House SS No. 4 Doors Open Clarington

Newtonville School House SS No. 4

The area’s first school house, from the 1840s, closed in the 1850s. According to the township minutes, it was moved because it was an obstruction and nuisance where it stood. At that time, it was moved to its current location and was later used as a harness and shoe repair shop by local businessman George Hancock.
