RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - The school board in the town of Rutland is assuming responsibility for a community center that for decades served as a one-room school house.

When the building known recently as the Cheney Hill Community Center opened in 1942 it was considered modern because it had flush toilets and a furnace. It served as a school until it closed in 1967.

School Board Vice Chairman Matthew Branchaud tells the Rutland Herald the board has asked a contractor to provide an estimate on the cost to update the building.

He says that once the board knows the costs to remodel the building an informed choice can be made about the building’s future. It could be sold, retained as school property or leased.
