Claridon School Memorial Pavilion c.2008

This open air pavilion serves as a memorial,on our town common, to all the past township schools that have been closed and consolidated throughout the years (progress?). The project was totally funded by private donations. The pavilion features white oak, black cherry, yellow-poplar, sugar maple, red maple, red oak, norway spruce, and eastern hemlock timber and lumber. The design concept is based on the original high school building that once stood in East Claridon. Two queenpost trusses form the bell tower that hold two 100 year-old + bells from former school buildings in the township.
