New school put on hold

The trustees of Chester School District No. 2 received four bids on Sept. 5, 1912 for the construction of the new proposed school building to be erected. The lowest bid was from contractor Durkee of Horicon, who bid $7,650 to put up the building. The other proposals ranged as high as $10,000 and consequently the contract was not let.

Contractor Durkee agreed to reduce his bid to $7,000 providing several items called for in the plans are eliminated. Durkee’s bid will be accepted if the State Education Dept. agrees. (Note…The complete story of the wish of Chestertown officials to tear down the old Baptist Church and erect a new school was told in this column in the July 28, 2012 Adirondack Journal.)
