Our History Our School, Make Maybrook Elementary a Historic Site
Maybrook Elementary Preservation is a petition to have the Maybrook Elementary School building deemed historic to preserve it as a part of our village. Maybrook Elementary was built in 1923 for the children of the Village of Maybrook to learn. It has stood atop the hill on Broadway for over 90 years, this being the first it has not welcomed students into it's doors to learn. We would like to have this building deemed historic to preserve it for the village residents and future generations. For many village residents many generations have attended the school,and we would like the building preserved so that it remains a part of our village history. Preservation has many benefits, including tax breaks and the ability to access grants and monies for building repairs. FACT: Buildings under the auspices of local, county, state or federal historic preservation status have the following going for them.NYS is a home rule state, so the strongest protection of the Elementary school will come from the local village historic status. Then the Town then the county and so on. Second, any non-residential historic building is eligible for a tax reduction and tax rebate of sorts for any exterior maintenance or historic restoration work. Please join us by showing your love for Maybrook Elementary and sign the petition to make our school a part of the rich history of Orange County. Thank you for your support!
