Kudos to Al Capurso and the Orleans County Historical Association for saving the Gaines Basin cobblestone schoolhouse. Al took on a project with the same diligence he has shown throughout his life. Slowly and with focused determination he worked to reclaim this schoolhouse to its rightful stature in this county.

Yes, others helped with this project, but let’s give Al a 95 percent on this project which has now been recognized by the governor to be placed on the State and National Registry of Historic Places.

Al, Congratulations from this entire community. No one else could have done it!
